How lovely to get a letter from you dear! What are ramilletes? Goodness gracious! Dead fish? In your hair?? How awful! You should try to teach Antonio some manners! Perhaps when Samantha begins Proper School again he could attend. Samantha is practicing her opera singing right now. Hehe. The New Year’s ball was so lovely, don’t you agree? It was so delightful to chat with you and your sisters! We are getting a new addition to our house installed soon, the front porch and front door!
Love, Rebecca K. Parkington
