A Letter From Her

"I will gladly join you, as you ask, at Barstell's," she wrote. "We must take care that we are not discovered - wear a trysting mask, if you could, or a concealing traveling coat. I understand your anxiousness. I would be lying if I claimed I did not feel similarly. But we cannot afford to throw our lives to the wind when circumspection might suffice. Be well, I pray, and I shall meet you before too very long. Make certain that this letter has not been read when Marianna delivers it.
