A young member of Woodseats Library Chess club considering her next move!

I had only just got through the door of the library, when Amber (aged 2, I think) marched up to me and intimated that she knew what Chess was and could set up the pieces and knew some of their names. She was rapidly followed by Leo, her brother, (aka Leonidas), who turned out to be a good player-he knew about castling and en passant. We had a good game. He said that his Dad had taught him. He’d done a good job. As he could read a game score , we looked at this famous masterpiece

Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard
“A Night at the Opera”
Paris (1858),
Paul Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard

Leo said that he thought it was not too bad!
There were numerous other customers as well: Joe and his Dad, Billy and his grandpa. Both adults said that they might venture down to the Red Lion in the near future.

What did one chess book say to the other chess book? Answers on a postcard!
