  1. Oddly enough, Archbishop Fisher was the uncle of my spinster headmistress, Miss Fisher, when I was at boarding school in England – a fact of which she was very proud.

I’m not sure what her views on knitting were. She always maintained that she would retire when she could no longer take the stairs up to her rooms three at a time! She was well over six feet tall, so not too much of a stretch for her :-).
