February 2, 2011; Source: Daily Herald | In this query, Miss manners is asked if a museum, having been offered a well respected artist’s piece by a donor by mail, is obliged to answer the letter sent by said donor whether or not they want the piece. The answer was an emphatic yes! Miss Manners was quite suitably outraged, urging the donor to take her business elsewhere. Small reminder.—Ruth McCambridge
