Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Left Out To Dry
April 27th

I arrived at Mrs. Black's house party last night and told everyone you had become quite ill. I almost hope that's the truth, because I can think of no other reason you might be avoiding a gathering at the home of one of my close friends. Your absence is quite conspicuous, though I hope I was able to disguise how much of a surprise it came to me.

I hope you will be feeling better by the time the season starts next month. It shall be difficult to make last-minute excuses for you at our own parties.

You might, at least, have told me you weren't coming.

I had informed Mrs. Black upon receipt of the invitation that I did not think my health would permit me to attend. It seemed the easiest route, given my lack of engagement with society of late, and in truth I suspected—rightly—that simply wouldn't have it in me to pretend I wanted to be there.

I do hope my absence will not prevent you from having a jolly time. Please give my best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Black, and extend once again my regrets.
With affection,

If your absence prevented me from enjoying myself I should hardly have smiled for the last year, would I have?
