Dear Mrs. Darcy:
Thank you for your kind note. I must first beg your pardon. I believe you requested to "follow" me the other day. Being in the habit of declining followers out of hand, I didn't notice who it was who so kindly requested my "followship." I do hope you will understand that this was simply a clerical error. I would be most pleased if you would, first accept my followship request, and in turn, select "follow" on my account. We must both follow each other, apparently, in order for my to send your invitation to join Anglophiles Anonymous. In the old days, things were much simpler, but alas, the times change and we must change with them. In the matter of your ridiculously British alias, we are not in the habit of choosing literary alter egos; however, so long as Mrs. Darcy is not Mrs. Elizabeth Darcy, nee Bennett, I foresee no arched eyebrows. Kindly let me know your Christian name, and if you would, your English address -- for instance, Mrs. X Darcy of X -- I would be so grateful. Once we're duly following each other, I would be most pleased to issue an invitation to the Hall. We're a lively, intelligent group and I hope you will be a happy and enthusiastic member.
Dear Miss P,
Forgive my writing without a proper introduction, but Shelfari tells me you are a member Most Like Me. I should like to draw your attention to my group Anglophiles Anonymous. Do give it a look-see, and if you'd like to join, leave your card with Mrs. Danvers. I should be delighted to hear from you.
It certainly did! especially since my computer doesn't like this site and kept crashing on me! Very frustrating, but got there in the end. Have only managed to find one book from your recommendations do far (Poisonwood Bible) but am still keeping an eye out! Send my love to dad.
