Dear Gentle Readers,
On Sunday last Sir Thomas and I attended a concert with our dear Le Bon Ton Society that lifted the soul and delighted the senses.
Mme de Valois, Mme de Bordeax, and Myself
Captain and Mrs. Cartwright
The Bach Cantata Choir of Portland performed four lovely pieces ranging from Handel to Vivaldi, and of course Bach. The performers were stupendous and the director delighted us with his wit and charm.
The Choir and their illustrious director, Mr. Ralf Nelson.
Mme and Col. Etienne de Valois
Following the delightful performance, we took our carriages to the Peninsula Rose Garden for a stroll in the outdoors.
Our merry party: Cpt. and Mrs. Cartwright, Sir Thomas and Myself, Col. and Mme de Valois, and Mme de Bordeaux
The weather was overcast, but comfortable and there was no rain to hinder our stroll.
Myself, you can see the new voile gown under my robe.

The flowers were in their winter state, but the shrubbery was quite green and lovely. The event was a lovely start to the Season.
Well, dear friends, I must conclude for today and put away my pen. I must away to the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Cartwright for tea and sewing.
Your Most Humble Servant,
Lady Georgiana Sully
