My dear Duchess,
Do forgive me for my lack of correspondence lately,
I'm all a glow my adorable son James who is of the same age as your Christopher was approached in St. Aston on the slopes by a British film crew and was roped in as an extra snowboarder, a Mothers pride on Mother's day know no boundaries.
Trusting this note finds you in good health, back to the spring cleaning, Brympton is positively shining with all the new painting achieved through such a cold harsh winter,log fires saved us from perishing.
