Warm Reply on Love Letter of Courtship
I had really got over the excitement of reading your previous letter full of quotations from Shakespeare than your second letter arrived. Each line is studded with jewels I cherish. Your praise counts for more than anything in the world. One evening my sister caught me dancing and chanting phrases from your letter. To repeat your very quotation, “Love is blind and lovers cannot see the petty follies they themselves commit!”
As for my repartee, I only am to blame if I sounded a little rude. I inherit this quality from my mother’s brother, a professor, and goes about admonishing all and sundry in the world as if it were one large classroom!
When I become part of your home & family, I shall play the gentle Portia putting everything right, I assure you.
When you come to my house on Saturday Sunil do wear that striking three-piece suit you wore at the Reunion. It makes you look like a matinee idol. My parents would be bowled over like their daughter was!
I’ll wait for your footsteps with each heartthrob.
