Samantha and Rebecca gave me a talk about what a young lady should be like, and that I should not wear my fashionable dresses except for special occasions, and that Sonja was the worst example of a little lady! And then after I had talked to Rebecca and Samantha about it, I realized that I have been very snooty and rude lately. Please forgive me if I have been mean or rude lately! Now that I wear simple play dresses I can do whatever I like! I am taking French, piano, art, singing, sewing and cooking lessons. How is William? I hope he has not been inspecting bugs lately! Does he treat you well? How is Nan? Did she like the chocolate I gave her for Christmas? I hope so. Lately we have been paying Alison McCann and Megan Ryder to walk Zongo, Quackers, Sunshine and Snowball but they have not come to take them on a walk for quite a long time! What do you want to do when you grow up? Go to a fancy college? Or be a lovely and charming housewife? I am going to do whatever Rebecca and Samantha prefer me to do. Sweet potatoes and apples sounds delicious- I remember tasting it at the New Years ball! Do you know when the next circle is to be? We got a new part of our mansion built! And now we have a very nice front door. Recently I have been very sick, but Josefina Montoya cured me! I heard from her that your father is not well, is it true? Do tell him to get well, please! Do you have something you always drink before bed? I always drink a cup of hot chocolate. Mmm! How is Rose? Are you working on any sewing projects? I plan to make bedsheets, pillows and mattresses for my dolls for my next sewing project. I got a perfume bottle for Christmas, but unfortunately after Rebecca and Samantha’s talk with me I may no longer wear it except for special parties. Oh dear! I do believe I have written too much again! I just start writing and I can not stop. Anyway, what do you think of Sonja’s behavior towards us? Do you think we should still be friends with her? Right now out of my window I can see Suzanne Wickon fussing with one of your mothers’ employees at the dress shop. I would love to see your brick fireplace sometime, it sounds lovely! I can’t wait until the photos develop at Hopkins Photos of the New Years party! I am probably going to get the one of Sonja, you and me framed. How is your dog Juliet? I have not seen her for quite a while. Have you heard any news of the concerto concert? I am looking forward to seeing Nan play a solo! Has your mother started her spring garden yet? How is your daddy’s store in Williamsburg? I just realized that Williamsburg has William’s first name and my last name! Well I hope you are fine and well. Yours till the Niagara Falls!
Xoxo, Love, Teresa
