Here is the first letter…

Miss Elizabeth Howard
The Old Grange

15th June 2023

My dearest Elizabeth,

Forgive my forwardness in thus addressing you, as you don't yet know me, although I have had the pleasure of observing you for some time. Not in an intrusive manner, let me hasten to assure you. But your window curtains frame, rather than conceal, your lovely face.

Please don't be afraid, I mean you no harm, but I simply take pleasure from watching you brush your long flaxen hair. I overheard you discussing a crop and would urge you to reconsider. A woman's hair is, indeed, her crowning glory.

Yours respectfully,
