"My wife and I just celebrated our first anniversary, which gave us occasion to think back on our wedding and how wonderful our stay was at Pleasant Springs Farm. Remembering the peace we found in the cottage, the splendid breakfasts you made for us, the wonderful ride on the canal we took on the bicycles you loaned us, and the lovely wool hat we bought from you and your sheep (I assume you give them a cut of the profits) made us feel very sweet and warm. They are truly great memories for us and we have you to thank!"
