Congratulations on an engagement
Your brother told me the great news about your engagement with Anita. It is the best news of the year percolating so far from the secret family files. I can’t tell you, dear, how pleased your uncle and I are by the news; we have been very close to Anita’s family for years, as you know and we have always thought of her as an unusually fine and dependable young woman.
I congratulate you on your good fortune and wish you both the best of everything in life.
Yours as ever
