Letter: to Robin from Ella Item: letter to Robin Warnings: none Open to: Robin
I am sorry to not have written for so long, but a great many things have been happening and only now have I had time to write to you about everything. I hope you are well and happy as you should be when this reaches you.
Father has passed away. I think this will encourage both John and Daphne to be married, which means I might be able to do the same myself. There are several gentlemen that I know who I might not mind spending the rest of my days with, but I worry that I will grow bored of them before they realise what a lovely young lady I am and bother to propose.
I envy you at times, my dear friend, because I imagine your life is far more interesting than my own. Despite any gossip that I might create or overhear, my entertainments are in short supply recently. The one highlight I can think of was the meeting of a gentleman at my father’s funeral. Mr. Brinsley is an American, from what I can tell of his manner of speaking, and I have also gathered that he is an MP, though he acts as a man who is carefree and defined by his own whims instead of politics. We had a lovely conversation in which we came up with a clever plan to make my sister truly happy. I shall not reveal the details here, lest our fabulous scheme fail. If it does come to fruition, however, be assured that I will share all details of the matter with you!
I may find myself in London sometime this summer if all goes according to plan. We shall have to see one another, if that is the case, as it has been far too long.
Please write back to me and tell me how you have been and anything exciting that has happened to you. I should like to live your own adventures through reading about them if you will let me.
