Mallory, I haven’t written to you for a long time. Mother makes me write letters every day, I actually enjoy it. Little Everett was sent to boarding school to take up the violin. I miss him so, It’s hard without him being home much. Every Sunday he visits. Even though he is very annoying I still miss him.
I am so excited because the spring ball Miss Weatherford is hosting is tomorrow evening. I am going to wear a beautiful Violet evening gown, with lots of frills, and those puffy sleeves. It’s so becoming and best of all, the ball is the night of my birthday. I’m turning 13 years old. My first ball and I’m finally a young woman! It’s going to be splendid!
We have a visitor in Constard. It’s a very intelligent and charming young man. He visits frequently. He tutors me in art and literature. I think he is about fourteen. I hope he comes to the ball, maybe he might even dance with me!
How is college going? I miss you so.
I must go now, Mother is going out for tea and I have to come with her.
Have a wonderful day,
Your little sister,
