I have just heard from Isobel that you will be absent from our Christmas Eve festivities. I am so disappointed. We have invited the charming Mr. Samuel Cricket, my brothers University friend for the Holidays since his family is touring somewhere in Asia. You will be sorely missed. Your dance card would have be full to over-flowing since so many of Fathers’s Regiment will be present. Please reconsider your plans and return to Maple Lane.
Your Dearest School Friend,
