Dearest Mother,

Your missive has been received, and I do apologize for the trouble I have caused you. This last Holiday was a measure of perhaps poor judgement on my part in a desire to finally know what it was like to have a Holiday as my peers have. I regret making the decision to go ahead with those plans without advising you — as I have been left to my own devices the previous five years, I didn't really put thought into the process. I knew Bosheth would be alone at our main house while father was away in Geneva and you were with your mother in Wales, and thought he would like to have the chance to serve someone. I hope he is faring better now.

I assure you, all manner of respect was given to the holdings. Grandfather's decorations were brought out, cleaned, polished, and given the utmost care, and I left the place in the same manner in which I found it.

You needn't worry any more about her, though. In no small part due to the humiliation doled out to myself, her, and Rowena, as well as multiple other factors, she has parted ways with me. I am left adrift as a result, but at least you can take solace in knowing that I am alone again.

- Silas
