What is this enormous request, Jordan He wants you invite Daisy to tea! It was a matter of chance that I should have rented a house in one of the strangest communities in North America. My family have been prominent, well-to-do people in this Middle Western city for three generations. I think it would be even more weird if it was the same time for everyone on the Earth.
