Re: Tentative Tavern Day
- Good Mrs. Moyer,
There is no need to feel regret dear Wendy! Attendance is at one's
Convenience and Pleasure. I beg you be at ease! The Lord will provide
you ample time and quicken your haste as is Right and Proper for your
As a Midlin' Merchant, I believe intermittent emulation in the dress
of my more humble clientele serves to cause a sense of commonality
with them. Surely, such a feeling can only grease the wheels of our
trade! On the other hand, my affluent customers know me to be a man
of good Manners and Taste. Such amusement as to find me in a straw
hat is, to their way of thinking, no more than a quaint peculiarity
of my character. Talk is, after all, that the well renowned Mr.
Jefferson does sometimes don straw hats in Virginia commonwealth,
during the heat of summer. I should certainly ne'r wish to appear to
make better of myself than such a great Man.
Well, I do envy your fortunate Husband, as your delicately skilled
hand is so devoted to his best appearances! (His impeccably fitted,
glorious black suit still lingers in my mind's eye!) I've waited most
patiently for you to resume talk of my linen suit, but in vain.
Obviously, I must again pick up my needle and shears to save myself
any shame of depriving your family's necessities. Just as well. My
clumsy hands need more practice than I afford them and to see your
fine son and lovely daughter in new raiment will be a greater
satisfaction to my heart.
Please do post the photos you mentioned! For one, I especially take
serene pleasure in family portraits as they so quintessentially
encompass the theme of humanity's voyage across the sea of time.
In Covet'd Liberty, I truly Remain,
Pat'k Neil Fields
