There's nothing to compare to a good chinwag between friends and I'm at my chattiest when my pen does the talking for me.  I've just stepped into my autumn years and I'm feeling a bit chilly with it...  Never mind, there's nothing like a letter from a friend and a good book to warm the heart.

I am very pleased to find this group. I am seeking to expand my social group and wish to place my name in the circle to become a correspondence friend. What I seek is someone willing to correspond in a traditional way. Beginning with a message or two here on the Empire and then transitioning to mailed letters. 

I am inclined to take on two or three correspondents with a sincere wish to form close friendships through the sharing of real life events, triumphs, joys, disappointments etc. Even the sharing of occasional photos and small packages as time goes on. 

For me, distance is not an issue and I certainly welcome acquaintances from states and countries other than my own. However, I will say that I would prefer to correspond in English. 

If you are so inclined to favor this request, please, feel free to contact me via message here on the Empire. 

I look forward to hearing from those who are as equally dedicated to bringing back the Victorian social ideals as I am in practical means.

Greetings and salutations, New to Steampunk I suppose one could say, but keen to further my education, further exercise my I'll used mind.
I would greatly enjoy the opportunity to write again as I did in days of yore, with a real pen, and ink.
I am, sadly, also keen to reuse my frankly delicious stationary, my plum coloured ink, and my sealing wax once more..How very pretentious moi.
Feel free, do, to contact me.
My most respectful regards
Bianca -The Asiddburrn.
