It seems my authoresses have all sent their regrets today. They are celebrating an American holiday with their families. Something they call “Thanksgiving.”
Upon hearing more about this holiday, Albert was distressed to learn that a great many birds are sacrificed. However, when I assured him that they are almost entirely turkeys — those rather vulgar colonial fowl — his feathers were soothed.
Those of you living in America, please enjoy this holiday with your families. The authoresses will be back on Saturday for our regular Saturday Salon with special guest Brenna Aubrey, featuring the inspiration of Jane Austen.
In the meantime, the authoresses have all asked me to express how very thankful they are for you, our Ballroom guests. And as Americans hold no monopoly on gratitude, I will say that I am thankful for you, too! These past four months of balls and salons have been a true source of inspiration and amusement. Please have a safe and delightful holiday.
