I thought I'd write and see how you are, as I haven't heard a peep from you these last few months. Is all well on the home front? Are you content with your job?
I'd heard rumors that you were considering going back into service for Mrs. Fox, is there an ounce of truth to these? I wouldn't blame you - it was good pay.
We may need to hire a maid again since Mary dislikes being Governess AND housekeeper.
Sincerely, Edward Merriman
