Yes, I have heard. My dear uncle is the laughing-stock of the entire neighborhood. Please don't be mad, we must do something about him! There is a certain embarrassment at having a madman in the family. Oh Sanson. I had hoped for so much for us. For you, really. Everything was to be for you. My uncle's house... his lands... I mean, if one is to serve science, one must have the means. But maybe you can consider it a challenge. Think what cleverness it would take to wean my uncle from madness. To turn him from his course and persuade him to return home. Please we must hurry he can't have gotten far.
