My Dear Mr. Sullivan,
As per our recent conversation, it is my intention to sell my dearest departed Father’s estate at Number 10 Maple Lane. It was his intention to move to a smaller dwelling at Number 5 Maple Lane before his passing. While that did not come to pass, I find I can no longer oblige the leasing of the property. I wish to find a suitable family who will properly respect the house and grounds and cherish it as their own. I would appreciate any inquires that you could make on my behalf. I plan to return to Number One Maple Lane shortly after the New Year. I will inform you of the date of my return when I have confirmed my travel. In the past 5 years I have cherished your counsel about these matters and I trust that I may continue to do so.
Miss Lucy Augustine
