Letters from 1810

Lords & Ladies of We Make History,

 

Our 9th annual Pride & Prejudice Ball has come and gone but lives on in the warm affections which ignite our hearts as we ponder favourite memories, fine moments and smiling faces from this Saturday past.

 

Grace, elegance and all the attributes of gentility reigned supreme as charming ladies and gallant gentlemen gathered from all parts of the realm. Indeed Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Prescott, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria, Sun City, Litchfield Park, Goodyear, Laveen, Buckeye, Tonopah, Maricopa, Tucson and Sierra Vista were all ably represented, each by their own local aristocracy!

 

The Pride & Prejudice Ball always holds a certain quality of wonder. Is it the delightful dances, some slow and elegant, others quick and lively? Is it the beautiful ladies moving elegantly about the floor in high waisted gowns of silk with softly flowing trains? Is it simply the radiant smiles which light the room like so many bright and glowing candles?

Indeed, all of the above and much more! Has not our God been kind and gracious to us all? Surely, yea!

 

We do hope to see many of you again soon at our 8th annual American Heritage Festival (Nov. 20 & 21) or at our 10th annual Victorian Christmas Ball (Nov. 27) where the dances will be very lively, the caroling beautiful and the WMH family will celebrate "the most wonderful time of the year" and the Birth of our Saviour in true Christmas Splendour!
 
I remain
your servant in a noble cause
and blessed to be so.
 
Lord Scott
of
We Make History
 
 
PS  We do so enjoy and appreciate notes from our friends who have attended the Pride & Prejudice Ball who write with thanks, fond memories and such. Please do send them along!
Photos, portraits and works of art have been posted and may be viewed above. It is an excellent collection which will bring smiles to many. :o)
 
 
 
Encouraging Words in Appreciation of the Ladies
It has been well acknowledged by persons of discernment throughout history that of all the visible creation, God has blessed none with so much beauty as he has woman. This alone would be cause enough for great admiration, yet when woman adds to physical beauty such treasures as the beauty of good character; nobility, grace, generosity, affability, and discretion, along with intelligence, taste, wit and a sense of style, then she is a higher work of art indeed.

It is no hidden thing that women have great influence over men. A low woman may be able to reduce a low man to a level almost inhuman. But a true lady has the ability to lift, inspire and ennoble a good man toward chivalry, gentlemanly ideals and greatness itself.

Ladies, do polish your physical beauty and allow it to shine, recognizing that your attire does matter, yet take even greater heed to the development of those inner qualities which will bring depth to beauty's luster. When you have done this you will discover great power in making use of all to inspire the good men around you to higher levels of their own.

Your fond admirer,

Lord Scott
