We waited endlessly for your arrival, and now you are gone.
It’s only been one week, but I miss you so.
There are so many questions to be answered!
Will you adjust to motherhood? You abhorred pregnancy so.
Will you become more patient and understanding with your beloved Albert as he struggles to find his place in your world?
Will you learn to love locomotives with the same passion as Albert?
Will Dash be jealous of or look out for baby Victoria, the Princess Royal?
Will Skerrett realize the error of her ways and go in search of Mr. Francatelli and his pastry?
Will you and your mother ever be at peace with one another?
Will you continue be protected from the bullets of your foes?
Will you ever install a lock on your bedchamber door, or at least require Lehzen to knock first?
Must I wait a year for your return?
On to the Brontes!
