Dearest Cousin Rosemary, it is quite early but I want to make a brief visit to Mrs. Waters to inquire of her health. I have had my tea and some lovely coddled eggs brought to my chamber by Mrs. Hillary herself. She has such a kind heart. I will return later this morning. We have a Christmas tree to decorate! As I walk the lane I wish to search for some colorful berries to add to our mantle trimmings. Until later.
