My dearest Lady,

I never ever doubted for one moment, that your perspicacious bearing and deportment, belied anything less than a fine appreciation of the art of vision and creativity.

I remain faithfully yours,

I haven't seen my Sidney in ages, now would anyone like to see my trinkets?

My Dearest Muriel,

How delightful to hear your dulcet tones once more, and to learn to my delectation that you continue to be in robust health. As for my goodself, I fear to report that I have had a slight case of indigestion upon imbibing rather too much Patum Peperiumupon my morning toast. Never fear, I shall be able to stand up very shortly.

The last time you showed me your trinkets, I had to lean against the portmanteau to regain my breath, next time I shall bring some Sal Volatile with me.

Yours in continued anticipation,

Pickle slicers, bacon slicers, they can be fatal for an unwary digit. I learned that to my cost when I pickled my gherkins.

My dear lady,

Pray, might I take this opportunity to remind you that on one memorable occasion, in your exuberant haste, you attempted to pickle one more gherkin than was specifically necessary. I still walk with a slight limp to this very day.

Yours Affectionately,

I do hope, Colonel Snodgrass, you will excuse my interrupting our welcome for dear Mrs Miggins with mere raccoonery, but I am sure our loyal readers will be interested to know that Wikipedia's Featured Article a couple of days ago was Raccoon.

By the way, old boy, didn't you also serve in the Queen's Raccoon Guards at some stage?

I wish to acknowlege your kind communication of recent days. But I fear that I was only a mere Lieutenant Colonel in her Brittanic Majesties overseas forces. But yes, now you come to mention it, if my memory serves me correctly, there was a time when I was temporarily attached, to the 4th Light Raccoon Packhorse.

Yours Most Sincerely,

Re Yours of the 26th inst.

My dearest Muriel,

The news has just reached me of the grand opening of your new emporium, and I am imbibing a tincture to celebrate. I am sure that it will be as quintessentially delightful as your previous premises were. I know that you were a bit hesitant at first to show the bank manager your bloomers, but when you finally got your baps out, well the mortgage was yours for the asking.

I will pay you a visit at the first opportunity afforded to me, but in the meantime the local constabulary have asked my to acquaint you with the latest issue of the police Gazette, within which is a report of a suspicious character offering to show proprieters his black pudding, and then making an offer.

Yours in anticipation,

My dear lady,

It warms the cockles of my heart and other related places, to be afforded the opportunity to renew our past acquaintance. Indeed you have been sorely missed, although I am led to believe that was more of a disability for your good self.

Notwithstanding, I shall be departing upon the next packet steamer to Harwich, whereupon I shall endeavour to look up your particulars.

Yours in anticipation,

I miss some of the girls who used to hang around. Anyone remember Stacey Jane?
klc53* and Mrs Miggins seem to have drifted away as well. :(

I pray that you will forgive my most unannounced intrusion, but I could not pass by without inquiring further.

I heard mention of one Mrs. Miggins of long acquaintence to me, and sorely missed I have to say. If anyone has knowlege of the said lady's particulars, or even where she might be residing, a small gratuity will be forthcoming.

Yours in anticipation,

Muriel my Dear Lady,

How extremely nice to see you again, it has indeed been a long time since I had the pleasure of your company, but I can still remember tasting your dumplings round the back of your esteemed emporium, and a propensity for your rasperry tarts left me all of a quiver.

I always did aim to please, otherwise you wouldn't let me use the water closet, but I am indeed distressed to learn that you have fallen upon hard times, and would respectfully inquire whether I may be of assistance to you in your current dilemma, before you lose your fiducary breaches.

Yours in waiting,

My Dear Mrs. K,

What an absolutely exquisite pleasure to have this opportunity renew our previous acquaintance. I am beside myself with pleasure, and both of us send our heartfelt felicitations and good wishes.

I have recently returned from an extended visit to the Colonies and other rather far flung outposts of Her Majesties Realm. But I have to say that a dry Martini in Kuala Lumpur doesn't quite match up to a pink gin in the Mayfair Officers club don't ya know old gel.

But alas my dear lady, I am finding myself bereft, and it is indeed fortuitous that you have contacted me at this particular time. Would you perchance have any knowledge of the whereabouts of one Muriel Miggins?

I beg to remain Ma'am,

Your most Faithful Servant,

Sidney J. Snodgrass (Retd.)

Well, my dear sir, I have been coffin a bit recently, so I had a word with the local intern and he suggested that I go and see hymn. But I said I'd have to see him psalm other day, as I had a monumental headache.

4th April in the 57th year of her Majesties reign

My dear friends,

After a rather long trip to the Doldrums via the Panama Canal, I am delighted to be able to inform you, that I have recently disembarked from a Royal Mail Steamer at Harwich, and repaired here with good haste. And it appears not a moment to soon. A good acquaintance of mine has just made me aware that my beloved, Muriel Miggins, has made an all too brief appearance, and has been observed making her way, albeit a trifle unsteadily, towards the Olde Pie Shoppe.

I shall take this opportunity to investigate further, and to that end, I have called the hall porter to summon a Hansom cab. I will keep you good people appraised of forthcoming events.

Yours in Anticipation,

RE yours of the 29th inst.

My Dear Mrs K,

Yes, sadly Uncle Oswald is no longer with us, but his many aspirations live on in the hearts of true men. And yes, Mrs M. was tickled pink to know him as well, in fact on many occasions I am led to believe.

Truly yours,

SJM

Good Morrow,

May I present Fraternal greetings to the assembled throng hereabouts on this warm summers day. I would make so bold as to agree with my esteemed Mrs. Miggins, that dipping an appendage into the briny is indeed an invigorating pasttime. In fact here is my good self and my My Uncle Oswald last year at Bognor Regis.

My Dearest Mrs. K,

I send this dispatch to you via courier from my Gentlemans Club, where at present I am engaged in a spot of Bridge with the Major, don't ya know. I am greatly pleased that you should take such a kind interest in Mrs. M's latest endeavour. I have it on good authority that the local Health Inspector will make a full recovery, and is expected to resume his duties in about 3 months.

Sincerely,

Ah I am pleased to see that good fortune prevailed, and that your fiduciary arrangements have at last borne fruit. As I was saying to the Vicar only the other day, there has been a distinct lack of establisments where local gentlefolk might pop in for a quick one on the way home. I shall repair with good speed to the Vicarage to inform him of this good news.

It's where I first made the acquaintance of Sydney J. Snodgrass.


As I live and breathe, Mrs Miggins! How the devil are you Madam? Yes I too also remember that first meeting. It was behind the Village Temperance Hall, if my memory serves corectly. Yes indeed, we have a lot to thank this place for, how else would I have been able to get my hands on your dumplings?

Dear Comrades,

As I was partaking of a pre-lunch G&T at the Rangoon Lancers Gentlemans Club, I was informed by the barman that my good name was being mentioned. I have therefore hastened here with all dispatch, and would proffer my earnest felicitations to your goodselves.

I am indeed sadly at a loss to explain the prolonged absence of the dear Lady in question. But the last I heard, she was busily engaged in the annual spring cleaning of her esteemed establishment, and renovating her drawers.

I beg to remain Sirs,

Your Most Obedient Servant,
