Ah yes, the changing of seasons…I really have to say that I prefer those leading up to summertime than the months leading into the winter, You may wonder why, and I shall tell you!
Since it becomes darker leading into the winter, I get increasingly depressed at the prospect of being confined inside the house with my many duties and responsibilities. The summer, however, provides a larger amount of freedom as I can roam the grounds with my dear horse Penny.
(As long as I have remembered my bonnet! Heaven forbid I should become brown and freckly…)
At the moment, my father and brother are learning to play the game of chess. Do you know how to play it? I should like to learn.
Well, I must conclude this missive as I have been instructed to consult my list. I trust you and your family are in perfect health,
Yours truly, Felicity Merriman
