My Dearest Corwynne,
I am so glad that we have a written record of your birthday festivities. It will be a wonderful guide for the children of Gondor to use in the future when your birthday becomes a Gondorian National Holiday, as I am sure it will. They won't really understand why they are giving each other televisions, but I am sure they will find something to do with them.
I hope that you have recovered from War Practice, and have finally gotten warm. That WP weather is always a pitfall. But the company, especially this year, is always worth it. Leggs was half tempted to stay home to avoid some of the company, but we really luck out with their eventual absence. And he is thrilled to have partaken in the "fantasy" cheese spread and thought that it seemed very realistic...(like he would know!)
Another excellent part of WP was meeting with other groups that have heard independently of our current situation and feel, as we do, that we have been treated in a very unchivalrous manner. Of course we knew this, but it always nice to have independent confirmation. We do have such lovely friends.
Well, it is time to unpack the bags and carry on with the laundry. I hope you found the White City was able to carry on with out you for the weekend.
Your affectionate friend,
