Lady Helen Gorne-Bacque, Vicometesse de Graville, Baronne de Milly, to The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Alain de la Bassée, Greetings!
Right Reverend Monsignor,
Let me be the first to congratulate you upon your promotion to Canon of Reims. I was gratified to learn that speaking to the Bishop on your behalf had borne fruit and am confident that you will conduct your new duties with the diligence and success which has marked your clerical career so far.
Doubtless you will be attending the coronation of our new King and Queen this month, but I suspect that there will be little opportunity to converse. Perhaps you might care to join Roland and myself in my owner's box at the Steeplechase in the following week ? I recall that we had such an enjoyable time at the last race meeting - the Downs I believe ?
