Let me first congratulate you on your beautiful prizewinning costume and hairstyle at the Masked Ball. You looked positively stunning and completely deserved the prize. At the moment I am sadly enjoying the last few days of having our full house before we have to remove the Green Parlor for the Nutcracker and set up all of our Christmas decorations. It is such a hassle, and I really wish that we could have our full house once in a while for Christmas time. When does your family usually put up your tree and decorate the rancho? What kinds of decorations do you use? I also hope the food rounds get done soon, as the entire town is completely out of food! I don’t even have any tea left to sit and sip as I write to you. Well, I hope your family is well and I will hear from you soon.
Sincerely, Samantha E. Parkington
