My dear Miss Pie,
You must accept that not every young lady is suitable for being a party organizer. You had better give the task to a married lady. Married ladies can be safely authorized. I am myself used to having the best dinner and evening parties from Bath or my brother Suckling's mansion house, Maple Grove.
I've found Highbury, my new home, a little lacking, though naturally nothing can compare to Maple Grove. I am delighted that I shall be considered the most accomplished hostess. I am a little shocked at the want of two drawing rooms in most houses, at the poor attempt at rout-cakes, and there is never any ice in the Highbury card parties. My new friends are a good deal behind hand in knowledge of the world.
You should follow my example, Miss Pinkamina, and give just one very superior party; in which card tables should be set out with separate candles and unbroken packs of cards in the true style, and with many waiters and servants engaged for the evening than your friends ever saw. The refreshments must be served at exactly the proper hour, and in the proper order.
Or you may organize an expedition with a picnic, Pinkamina. Now is July and the weather is perfect. It shall be quite delightful! With me as the chaperon of the party, nothing will be amiss. Only you must choose the best food and I hope your horse-- er, how do you travel in Ponyville? Do you have donkeys? -- shall not became lame. Do you have a carriage? You should go in a launderette if you happen to have one.
