My Dearest Friends,
There is no doubt the harshness of the winter season has set in with force. A strong constitution is surely required to withstand the onslaught these freezing winds and snow. One can barely recall the heat of summer or the golden days of autumn.
Memories slip through my mind of the past year and many shining times. More so now than ever before, I feel shining times are like snowflakes and diamonds, they melt quickly away and their memories last forever. Och, we are too caught up in the darkness of winter's drear!
We must take heart, for soon we shall travel to Fort deChartes in the company of our dear friend Mistress Storey to join a small gathering of like minded women. No doubt there shall be much laughter, entertainments and food to warm our hearts and fill our bellies! Further, the 29th a grand ball is to be held at the Fraizer along the banks of the Ohio. To this fine festivity Miss Katherine and I shall go, likely staying once more with our friends Mr. Medley and Miss Becky.
A glance toward our planned engagements reveals much to be enjoyed through the coming year. No doubt these cold dreary days of winter will slip by and we shall emerge into the spring fresh and renewed!
