Now that I think of it, it is quite ridiculous that Suzanne’s rose bush placed higher than your mother’s garden. Lily does such lovely work, she should be recognized for it. Oh and what a scandal for Suzanne to cover her bush in perfume! That should be against the rules of the contest! Hawkins did not employ any such backward tactics, I can quite assure you.
As to tennis, it is quite a lovely sport that was just started up as a fashionable one. It goes like this: Two players face each other across a vertical net and try to get a ball flying between them, using rackets to swat the bat with.
It is a very active sport and I have to wear a costume that nearly resembles pants, because I have to move so fast.
Surely you’ve heard of tennis?!
Sincerely, Samantha E. Parkington
