Dearest,

I was fortunate enough to catch the message you dispatched to the Gazette that infers you are home again and not under the knife of those filthy butchers in white coats.

I have another gift for you, this time straight from London, if you please!  My mother collected all the fashion papers, fashion plates, and modiste recommendations for one’s wedding clothes and trousseau and sent them to me that I might forward them to you with her best compliments.  Do direct me how they should be sent, I am sure the latest London fashions and planning your upcoming nuptials will make your convalescence much more agreeable.

And do let me know whatever service I may do for you, beloved.  I am quite at your disposal.

Affectionately,
Lady Rivenall

My love!

Your wedding was an absolute sucess!  Your dress was a dream (are you sure it hasn’t come straight from Paris?), your whole person was lovely, and your countenance was radiant!  I hope Mr. Tilney is just as enthusiastic, but I rather suspect he is too busy being perfectly happy to be bothered by such bubbling mirth.  Do write as soon as ever you can and give up the insights of a newly married matron,

Affectionately,
Miss Kirk

My Dearest Miss Kirk,

You have my fondest congratulations and well wishes for both you and Mr. Rivenhall.  I have no doubt that while the next few months may try your patience, test your planning and decision making abilities, and bring up unpredictable sources of vexation, the two of you shall be very happy with one another’s company for eternity.  And with that, I too must seek for good tidings.  This past weekend I too entered into the happy stage of engagement.

May we both be able to deal with the upcoming months with grace, elegance, and, if all else fails, Triple Choc-Choc-Choc-Chocolate Chunk and Uncle Bubba’s Big Belly Butter Brickle.  Or not, since we will both be needed to look radiant in our wedding dresses.  Hmm…I shall let you know when I come up with a suitable alternative.

Until then, yours joyously,

Miss Pevensie

“Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony.”

My Darling Miss Kirk,

As covered during our browsing of the sparkly goods on High Street, I am not as yet engaged to enter into the bond of matrimonial bliss.  I am, however, positive that I have been persuaded by my feelings for young master Tilney that such an engagement will follow shortly. 

After we parted ways last night, I was visiting with the man himself and prodded (as much as I dared) into his plans and expectations for the matter.  Suffice it to say that I am fairly sure he planning some grandios event for the fourteenth of February–the day of all things romantic (*gags*).  He knows of my distaste for the holiday and of the mostly unpleasant memories I associate it and wishes to change that.  Thus I am resigned.  After all, I am hopelessly in love.

Enough on my current situation.  Have you made any noticeable progress with Mr. Rivenhall?  Or must we call upon our good friend Boris to, er, persuade him into action?  All it would take is a word from you.  Remember, Boris owes you. 🙂

This is a first for us both, my dear.  We shall perservere.  We shall conquer.  And we WILL get out boys on their knees before long!

Affectionately yours,

Miss Pevensie

Miss Kirk,
I am very conscious of the flattery of your note to myself, and to the excellent taste of Mr. Elliot to fall in love with such as I. However, I am also pleased to note that said gentleman’s travels in the future are to be truncated, due to one of his superiors noting to another that his frequent travel, during this particular year, was ostensibly to be lessened. Happily, Mr. B- has managed to achieve the feat, for which I am profusely grateful. No doubt, having the sight of a desolate young bride inflicted on him almost daily struck a chord in his heart which turned his sympathies in my direction. While it embarrasses me to think of how such behavior reflects on others of my sex, it does please me to reflect that on occasion a sad countenance projected onto a (it has been said) pretty face can inspire in others the kindness necessary to make great things come about.
I do hope that in the future, you will not find my company repugnant for the addition of so pleasant a man as Mr. Elliot.
I remain,
Affectionately yours,
Mrs. Elliot
