A Letter From Hadley Cooper

12 Dec

Dear Eddie,

Bert sends his thanks for your letter and will write to you when he has time, he is working hard for his exams. In the meantime he said for you to mind Mr Timmons as it will do you well when you do come to school next year.

Interesting that Mother and Father’s disagreement passed. I thought that perhaps it was about money again. You will not remember but when you were born Father’s business was in some trouble. I was too young at the time to understand the details but obviously things picked up again. Now I’m not so sure. If the business was in trouble then they would they dismiss our cheapest servant then re-hire an older (and more expensive)one? I think not. I do not think that they would argue over such a thing as dismissing even a long standing servant such as Frankie. My thoughts are that there was some bad behaviour amongst he servants that resulted in their dismissal and the argument was over another matter.

Bert thought your letter was very grown-up though I didn’t read him the second part of your postscript! Bert is in study mode so he hasn’t gotten up to any mischief however I may have some to report to you. Our school gates have our school crest on them. It went missing. One of the fellows in my form received a letter from his friend at another school to say theirs had gone missing also and a few other school were reporting the same thing. He (and I by association) have been invited to a meeting over the incidents, so I’ll let you know what transpires.

Now I must be off. A few of the fellows are planning on making toffee this afternoon. If it comes off then I’ll send you’ll a piece!

Your brother,

Hadley

    That’s so weird! Where the crests on the schools needed to make some kind of device work? And does that mean all the schools are…questionable places? And…frankie as a longstanding servant makes me wonder because of her age. I’m not sure what I’m trying to guess at but…ah! This mystery has my mind going in circles!

      I guess you found out a bit more about the crests! 😀 Yes, Frankie as a longstanding servant… hmmmm… Look forward to chapter 17 where you get to learn some more about Frankie!

    Yeah I was curious about Frankie being called ‘long-standing servant’ when she’s so young. Also, in the last letter she was quoted as saying ‘Mr Edmund’ whereas in the girl’s school, Jo had to instruct her a few times to call them ‘Miss’, so it’s almost as though Edmund and Hadley are writing about a Frankie that worked for them after her time in the girl’s school, when she was older.

      It was the new scullery maid that was being quoted in the last letter. 🙂
