The carriage (sleigh) is waiting outside to bring Rebecca and I into town for the town council meeting this afternoon. I read your letter and simply can't seem to recall a man in a red coat paying us a visit. I do wonder who it was! There seem to be many new people in town lately, probably thanks to the new, more frequent stops of the train to and from Lincolnville. Have you met any of these new visitors?
How do you occupy your free time these days? What do you think of the Clothes Boutiques' latest styles?
Sincerely, Samantha E. Parkington
