43!!! I didn’t realize there were so many but I guess it makes sense. That is a LOT of letters to respond to. I don’t think I’d make a good secretary. I’m not particularly empathetic. Especially to strangers. I’m amazed by how many of the secretaries have been there for such a long time. Over 20 years responding to people’s love woes? That takes amazing fortitude.

I think it would take special person to go through all those letters and respond thoughtfully to each. I can see how easy it would be to get cynical and start being sarcastic and flip with the answers.
(Look in the video section of the group to watch interviews with Juliet’s secretaries.)
Do you think Juliet’s secretaries all have a common trait? Do you think you could manage to be one of them?
