tongues and languages

I think I'm going to have to deal with the languages. . . .

I try to evade them.  I'm not good at it.  But Kilmeny is going to notice that Sophonisba came from a long ways off and talks a little funny.  Someone's going to have to explain to her -- that it's magic.  More effort than that I'm not going to put into the languages.

On the other hand, she's being instructed for her baptism.  She is going to notice the tower of Babel as well.

It's a powerful spell.  I may have them put it off until Pentecost for her.  (And post-baptism, as well.)
