Sometimes William is so unsensitive! He doesn’t understand girls in the least. You would not believe how many times he has rolled his eyes at me this evening. ‘Twas very rude. I apologize for the writing, but I have not written for a long time and my quill is not working properly. We shall be getting our yuletide decorations up soon! I do love this season, don’t you? I can’t wait for the twelfth night cake, yule log, and the New Year’s ball! Speaking of which, mother might make me a new ballgown! ‘Twill be of silky striped pink and beige fabric. I might wear my old one though because it matches William’s new vest and waistcoat. What would you name your next doll if you got one? I was so overjoyed that I was invited to the masked ball! ‘Twas so elegant! I do hope that Suzanne invites me again next year! How I wish that I could be a part of the sewing circle! You are so lucky indeed! You must describe each one you go to to me in great detail. Such as what everyone was wearing, eating, saying, etc. That must have been scandalous when Polly said all those rude things! She would most certainly be in the gossip column if her mother didn’t write it!
Your best friend forever, Rachel V.
