: Excuse me? 'A bit more decorum' indeed!! Miss Katie knows all about the latest styles! She has good, European culture and breeding and knows EXACTLY how to dress for every occasion!! She KNOWS what is in vogue - and I can assure you, she will be dressed accordingly!! And in the high society from which she originates, that society DOES NOT wear ANYTHING 'lindsey-woolsey, linen or calico'!!! Brocades, silks, satins and organza - THAT is the material of breeding!!
: And 'busoms' being exposed a la Cora Monro, is definitely 'de rigueur'!! After all, what is good enough for Miss Cora, is definitely good enough for Miss Katie!! Good grief, who wants to be 'staid and proper'!! Miss Marcia - as they will say in 1999 - get a grip!!
: Therefore, it behoves me to announce to all in Mohicanland, Miss Katie will have few quilts ready for the coming Winter as she will be employed in getting together her 'wardrobe' for her sojourn up to Chimney Rock come next Summer. Therefore, those in need of some bedding, best come now and be assured of fulfilling their needs!!

Dear Miss Katie,
Well, la-di-da! Aren't WE just impressed with ourselves and our social standing!! Miss Marcia would like to remind you that she comes from a pretty REEfined background herownself, doncha know! And if lindsey-woolsey is good enough for HER to wear day-to-day in Mohicanland, it is certainly good enough for the likes o' YOU! Harummmmmmmph!! Now, mind you, Miss Marcia does LOVE an opportunity to dress up a bit, and pull out her laces and ribbons, and fine velvets & silks, too...but she certainly feels there is nothing wrong with a good serviceable calico or gingham for daily wear in a rural environment such as we have here in our quaint little village!
And if Miss Katie doesn't want to be accused of puttin' on airs and the like, she'll not flaunt her finery and her genteel background TOO much. Old Crone and She-Who-Tracks would be ESPECIALLY put out...and it doesn't do to ruffle their feathers too much, ya know. As for Sassy, well that gal would come swoooshin' down on you on her ol' carpet & screech to a halt real sudden-like just to flang a cloud of dust over your fancy togs, and teach you a lesson or two! She doesn't take lightly to any Jenny-come-lately prissin' around town and makin' the rest of us look shabby!
Just puttin' a leetle bug in your ear, as it were, dearie!
Yours Most Graciously,
