ear Miss Ventus,
I want to straighten out a few things. I personally do not care about what this newspaper writes about me, but it hurts the reputation of both of my sisters, so I feel it is only proper to write the truth. So let me address your article point by point for you and your reader's convenience (because I do hope this letter will be printed out).
In reference to the two young men I was seen with at the ball, I do not know who the second boy was and that is the truth. I was asked to dance and it would be rude of me to say no. He was acting properly, there was nothing about him which would make me believe he was a slums resident. I am more inclined to believe he is not a resident of our lovely village of Hogsmeade. Nothing except for the dance happened between me and that mysterious young man. Dancing with someone is hardly inappropriate.
As for the kiss, your sources obviously hadn't heard that an engagement was established between myself and Mr. Grimstone. Our families agreed to that arrangement and we even have a blessing from Nicholas Flamel himself who happens to support my fiancee's career. If you put it in that light, I am sure it seems much less scandalous now.
His brother Anthony and I are not anything more than friends. In fact, I have not been with him alone at any time. We study together, as he has slightly better grades than I do and I can benefit from his companion. Upon learning that I am engaged to his brother, Anthony decided to keep me at a distance, because he did not want any suspicions of immoral behaviors. So seeing as I had not been with younger of the Grimstone's alone or I have not spoken to him in some time your conclusions are wrong.
My comments about corsets have been taken out of context. I said that a few years ago, when I truly was a rebel. I am far more mature now and I recently said that I thought that corsets are stupid and enslaving, but now I see how important they are. I advise you to check your sources, as they have outdated information. Also, just to calm you down, I ___________________________
