Grace, my dear.
You haven't contacted us since you left home.
At first we thought you were still angry because of the argument, but later, we learned what happened to you.
Before, we didn't even have a way to celebrate your birthday. But now, we know the address of your workplace.
Happy birthday, my dear Grace.
Inside this package is my present to you, a toolbag.
When I was young, I always wanted to venture far away, so I asked a famous craftsman in Londinium to make this toolbag. It's very durable, and can hold a lot of things.
But after that, I returned to the life that my parents planned out for me, so I never had a chance to use it.
Even though this world has many ways of stopping a person in her tracks, I believe that you can go further than me.
Your father is very disappointed in himself. He wants to go to Rhodes Island to look for you, but doesn't know how to face you, nor does he know how to deal with what would come next. If you ever see him, I hope you two can sit down and talk things through.
My daughter, no matter what happens, I will always support your decisions and your dreams.
If Henry disagrees with you, then I'll talk him into it.
One last thing: Your father found someone to make a whole bunch of those sweets you used to love as a kid, even though he was also the one who forbade you from having them... If they show up in the mail, don't eat them all at once!
Grace, I made a trip to Rhodes Island. Your coworker said you were out in the field, in some dangerous place no less. Something about being a battlefield medic for Rhodes Island.
The way I understand things is, Rhodes Island might be one of the best places in this world, but if you stay here, you should behave like a patient rather than running amok like you are now.
We can afford the cost of your treatment, but we can't afford to lose you a second time.
I've brought you some food and supplies. Some of it's perishable, so don't forget to eat it.
If you ever need anything, just let me know.
Beatrix wants me to sit down and have a good talk with you, so I'll come back next month.
Also, your mother wants to hear back from you more often.
The desk drawer in your dorm was broken, so I repaired it. Try not to stuff too many things in there.
