I am writing today of a splendid matter, of which I shall have the most delightful time recalling to you. A day of satin dresses and tea, cakes, and laughter, and many wonderful conversations about the oddest assortment of things! We had the great fortune of entertaining two of the finest ladies in the land--
and Lady Hayley.
And playing "Ring-Around-the-Roses" in succession is an absolute favorite! Such screams of delight were heard when everyone flew over and landed on top of one another! The getting up of one's self again remains to be an akward situation, as there is such a tangle of legs and arms and sashes afterwards!
And so dear reader, you may remember when you read this letter again, that I write in a grateful pen, happy for such a glorious occasion to have, perchance, happened upon us. Oh, not because Ladys Brooke and Hayley are such ladies of high regard, and prominent in our land, but because of the friends I have made, and so enjoyed in the making, and the deepening bond between us.
I remain yours, most truly,
