You are correct, I am nothing. I only know the meaning of the word Nettlehorst. Nettelhorst on the other hand , is a word that no mere human can understand. It is a concept like wax lips and sixteen inch “Clinchers” that I will never grasp even if I read all your books.

Daniel replies:

Are you admitting you can read? I suppose that sort of thing won't get you in trouble where you live, but here in the valley, I'd have a lot of difficulty with the neighbor-folk if they thought I was doing something subversive like that. Isn't there some member of the vegetable kingdom known as a horst nettle?
