My Dear Mr. Girty,
I have just read with some degree of alarm, of your recent recommendation of my quilts, to your *brothers*. I do hope you were encouraging the *buying* of my cosy bedcovers and not advocating the stealthy abstraction of same from my little establishment?!
I did think we had arrived at an amicable agreement over the payment of that rather nice quilt which you bought first and paid for later!! Your rather generous monetary settlement was much appreciated though I have to say - I cannot stuff gold pieces up my quilt (as I could have with the *used* eagle feathrs!).
As for the perfume, it certainly was 'formidable'!! That "Soir De Mohicanland" is certainly more deeply stirring to my blood than any imagining could possibly have been!! (almost makes me wish I had fallen into *Frenchie's* hands!). However, that slight odour of 'freshly killed meat' that emanated from around that peculiar crimson colouring on the bottle, rather took the edge off it! But like the real 'settler' that I am, I am sure I will get used to that!! No point wasting highest quality French perfume! Just one question - where in the colonies does one acquire such a rare scent?!!
Well, Mr. Girty, sir, much as I appreciate your recommending my quality bedding, I do hope I shall find that my stocktaking works out correctly at the end of the quarter!
Most graciously yours,
Miss Katie (of Katie's Quilts!).
P.S.- And I do hope that I have simply miscounted the number of hens in the coop this morning! I do believe that Miss Marcia leaves out quite a tasty repast for you behind her Downhome Kitchen. But the kitchen stops at my coop, sir! I believe 'hairpieces/extensions' extractions are proving quite profitable this season, therefore, you should have no need for chicken feathers, sir. So - hands off my poulty (and leave my hens alone, too!).
I thank you for your assistance in this matter, sir.
