I am so sorry for my lengthy absence from my writing desk! I have been so swept up in the parties of the season and preparing for them that I've hardly had time to set pen to paper!
Last night was Mrs. Wickon's masked ball, which was really lovely! I won first place on my costume and mask, which I worked practically all day on! I was very happy.
I don't know quite what happened, Josefina, but of course I would love to continue being penpals! We live so far away that it's very exotic to hear about your different lifestyle.
I am not sure when Proper school will begin, I'm working on a plan for Teresa's education at the moment, and that is the most important thing right now. But I'm always available for private tutoring if your sisters need help. Write soon!
Love, Samantha Parkington
