Letter #1: Period Drama Advice Event


The Period Drama Advice Column has begun! Remember, if you need any help with coming up with an answering letter, be sure to refer to the tips that I have left.

Our first letter comes to us from a Miss Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre).

Jane Eyre writing her letter
Dear Period Drama Advice Column,
I am the governess at Thornfield Hall, the home of Mr. Rochester. When I first met him, he seemed to be very harsh, eccentric, and unconventional, but I now find myself falling in love with him. He has been the only person who I could talk to as an equal. I had not intended to love him: I tried to fight it. He made me love him without looking at me, but he is to be shortly married to a Miss Ingram, a beautiful but subconscious person. I cannot help but love him. I've said that my pupil, Adele, should go to school and that I should seek a new situation, but I cannot bear to leave Thornfield: I have not been trampled on there; I have not been petrified; I have not been buried with inferior minds, and excluded from every glimpse of communion with what is bright and energetic and high. What shall I do?
Sincerely,
Jane Eyre

Remember, I will be accepting responding letters for one week. I will take letters until February 20th at 11:55 PM for Letter 1.


How would your character(s) respond to this letter? When you write your letter, make sure you post your responding letter(s) in this post. Good Luck!


 God Bless,
God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet

    I would have liked to enter more than one, but unfortunately I seem to have lacked the inspiration. haha
