  The correspondence began here. Dear Amelia, Thank you for your letter and you were wise to amend the description of our encounter, I would have indeed been disappointed otherwise. Clarity of word is clarity of thought, how else are we to learn? Sadly the school room lines were less adequate. I counted only 198 lines […]


  The correspondence began here. My Dear Miss Carlisle, Here is the letter you asked me to write. I have included the 200 lines of penance you ordered following our little chat. I trust they are satisfactory as they took me quite some time to write and I must confess I felt like a school girl […]


The correspondence began here. My dear Amelia, Did you but know it you have taken a very brave step by admitting and embracing your needs. When I next see you we will indeed discuss how a certain young lady might benefit from my guidance and I just know where to begin. On that I will say […]


The correspondence began here. Dear Amelia, You last letter was an admixture of impertinence and ill-disciplined ramblings.

It was lovely to relive old times and I was most gratified that you did not bear me any ill feeling from my time as […]


  The correspondence began here. Dear Amelia, There are only a few days now and I suppose this will be my last letter before our visit together. I must own that I am very curious to see you and what you have become. I always knew that you would be a fine young woman. I only […]


The correspondence began here. Dear Amelia, You most assuredly may not call me Miss Jane. As your former governess I may permit some familiarity at your concession; that is only appropriate. But to allow reciprocation undermines the difference in our station. Again you may be thankful that I am not engaged professionally in your regard. The […]


The correspondence began here. Dear Amelia, I see that you at least learned something and it was after all just a small slip. But do remember to address the world with confidence and own the truth. As you know I cannot stand meek and retiring women. You are no longer the child you once were […]
