I am glad to know that I am not snooty! For I would be devastated if I was! Yes indeed, Samantha said that Sonja was the worst example of a proper young lady! I loved your ball gown at the Valentines ball! Oh dear, I hope Nan’s eye is alright! Maybe she should go to Josefina, she probably has a cure! Do you like playing with paper dolls? I do! J Thank you so much for the Valentine’s gift that you gave me. It was very thoughtful and kind! How is Rose? I just finished eating a lovely breakfast of lemon blueberry muffins. Mmmm Does your mother allow you to wear perfume? Rebecca and Samantha don’t let me. I am so excited for the festival! I wonder if Suzanne will have a fashion show again? And I did love the picnic, the auction, the ball, and the booths as well. Do you have any ideas for a booth? We could sell handkerchiefs! Oh Rachel! We must have a stand with lacey (and very pretty) handkerchiefs! I am sure that every fashionable lady would want one! No, I have never tried elderberry tea, but I do hope to try some. Have you ever seen the famous painting of Mona Lisa? It was be Leonardo Da Vinci and I got a copy of it in France, you should come and see it sometime! Elizabeth was very rude this morning. I was waiting politely outside the bathroom when Elizabeth cut right in front of me. It was very rude! Oh dear, the Montoya’s horse is eating up our lilac bush! Hawkins spent ages planting those. Oh well…… Suzanne has not given me a singing lesson in quite a while. I hope to have one soon. How do you think Sonja acted at the Valentines party? I am so sorry that you no longer have Juliet! But as long as you are happy with your decision I will be happy too. Quackers is doing fine except Zongo and Sunshine have been trying to eat him lately. I love to come and bake with you! It would be very fun. Well, I am so sorry that this letter is SO short. But I really must go and have lunch. Well take care, dearest Rachel!
