Oh your European plans do sound so very exciting! I'm oh-so-very jealous. Do you know when you shall leave for England? You simply MUST come calling soon and tell us all your plans.
As to Teresa, she needs to enjoy her life completely, know how to write nice letters and have good manners, be well-educated and well-traveled, and be kind and caring towards others. She will be well-connected because of our and Grandmary's many acquaintances, so I am not very worried about her future. She is very much enjoying her carefree days of youth at the moment and learning whatever she would like and playing whenever she wants.
What about Rachel? Will she get an education? I am hoping that Teresa will learn several languages - French and Italian to start and then perhaps German and her native Irish Gaelic. Perhaps she shall attend a lady's boarding school in Europe. What a lovely experience that was for me!
I do hope to begin Proper School classes again but am still getting used to our house the way it is after we turned the post office back over to Laura in downtown. When I have my schedule organized I'll put together a new lesson plan for classes. How are your dance classes going with the little girls?
Sincerely, Samantha E. Parkington
