I do agree that a ball hosted by my Father and Mother would be an event to remember. A ball hosted by the Governor would certainly be well-attended, perhaps even graced by the presence of Lady Fox herself. Oh yes, splendid thought indeed!
Do you have fashion news in store for your response to this note? I do hope so. My home is to host a gathering this evening, the purpose of which I know not, but that important town leaders shall be in attendance. Have you daily activities you attend to each day in addition to the upkeep of the boutique? What does a normal morning include for you? I do feel rather faint at the moment, as I have rather had a dizzy moment. Therefore I must sign off for now.
Missing our chats dearly,

My dear Rachel,
I should also love a ball or party to go to, as I am constantly telling Suzanne and Cristal, and I think we may have one this Winter. I should just like to be properly outfitted when it arrives.
Why don't your mother and father hold a ball for once? They could call it the "Governor's Ball" and it could be just like an English court dance, except in Pleasantville! Wouldn't that just be splendid?
Yes, I have news of coming fashions! Of course, I only have news that the are coming, not what they shall be. Cristal shall be back within the hour and then we shall see!

My holiday season was exactly as it should have been; divinely lovely, and filled with good fare and cheer. I should certainly adore visiting you in your new establishment. How does life in a shop suit you? I rather like the responsibility of being part of an important business. Indeed, I believe it leaves one feeling quite a sense of empowerment. Do you not agree?
Much love, Rachel

My dear Rachel,
How have you been and how was your holiday season this year? I have been very well now that I live with Suzanne and Cristal downtown. It does suit me so much better to live with them than with my sister - I feel as though I am finally able to be myself!
I have also started to work for Cristal at her Clothes Boutique in Town Square. In fact, I am the manager now! Do please come down to visit me there!
January 30th, 2009 -new!
My dear Rachel,
You will never guess who we just saw in the lobby of the Hotel de Dutch. Lavendar Fox! Of course! Why she is here for the same reason. To gather the latest fashions and bring them around the world.
I am excited beyond belief to be in such a fine hotel and planning our trips to designer fashion boutiques tomorrow.
I am dressed in a fashionable pink and lace dress with puffed sleeves and a train, and my hair is in two French braids and a large pink bow. I just hope it will be enough until I get my fashionable dresses made!

How are you and your family, my dear? It has been ever so long since you've written, although I have seen you and I know you are just getting more proper. As I know well, manners come when you grow older.
This rule appears to have skipped my sister Angelica COMPLETELY, however, and so I must over-compensate for our entire family.
Please write, Sonja
