I’m so sorry that I was unable to write sooner. To cut an extremely long story short, I was waylaid in the desert, and so the journey home took a whole new direction and obviously, a lot longer than it should have.
I’m alright though. I might even venture to say that I am very well. I’ve come back refreshed, with a new view on things, entirely. And that is a good thing, no?
If you’re receiving this letter then I have missed you at the Estate. I hope things are going well at the Manor, and know that I will come out to see any progress for myself at some point very soon. I just have a few more minor things to take care of here before I head out again.
You were right, by the way, when you said that we are not given a life that we are not strong enough to live. Daddy would be so proud of you, Rainé, as am I. I am grateful every day that you have come into my life. I need you to know that.
See you soon,
