He asked her why the maid couldn't bring them the tea. And I stood frozen at the doorway, hoping over and over again that she would be able to lie, just a little , like I told her to.
She said, "I realize you have come a far distance to meet with me and I can tell you are a fine gentleman. Therefore, I feel it is necessary for me to communicate to you the utmost truth regarding your visit."

In 1565 Leonardo Botallo, a well-known anatomist, was the first European to describe the symptoms of allergies. He documented a collection of symptoms such as headache, sneezing and and itchy nose.
