Your doll’s tea party sounds like it was absolutely divine! At the moment, Rose is delicately perched on the sofa, avidly watching an intense game of checkers between Lissie and Nan. By the sound of it, Lissie seems to be taking lead of the game. I want to make a fancy evening gown with my new fabric, for I do not have one apart from my ballgown. The fabric is covered in delicate pastels- pink and blue flowers. What are you sewing right now? William seems to have disappeared from the house because I can not find him. (He needs to fetch water, you see.) I have a notion, however, that he has escaped down to the wharf to watch the soldiers march past and visit with his friend David, who is always fishing there. I trust you are well and in good health?
All my love, your dearest and most faithful friend, Rachel
