I have just heard from Mama that you have gone up to Hearld House for the Holidays. We will certainly miss you at our annual Christmas Eve dinner and dance. Papa has hired a marvelous orchestra for the evening. If your plans change, please post us at once. Say hello to your dear Cousin Rosemary and her Boys. Our thoughts and prayers are with them through this difficult time. By the way, I’ve heard rumor that Mr. Willoby is considering the sale of Hearld Estate to a Mr. Alex Blanding. Do you know of this?
