For Lord Chatham's Eyes Only | Sunday Right After Church | CD- Xmas 1677

Sophia de la Cerda

Recommended Posts

After she had spoken to Lord Langdon about Frances, Sophia decided to go to the palace library to check if the letter she had written to Lord Chatham was still where she had left it. She had plenty of time before she had to go home and prepare for Mistress Jenning's visit.


She didn't see anybody else as she slipped into the book-filled room and down the aisle that held Ovid's 'Amores.' Sliding the tome from its place on the shelf, she plopped down on the floor, turned it over, and shook it. The note fell out and onto her lap. Setting the book on the floor beside her, she wondered what the handsome Earl would think when he read her missive. She had, as they had agreed, written in Italian and used the pseudonyms they had created for themselves. He was Stefano and she was Caterina.


Trying to view envision him perusing it for the first time, she began to read. Her body hummed pleasantly when she had finished it.  Sophia hoped that Lord Chatham would be aroused by it too, and that he would leave one for her in return. First, though, she had to let him know where it was. She had not been able to speak with him alone for quite some time.


Hmmm, maybe she should take it with her and give it to him the next time she saw him. Yes, that was what she would do. Carefully folding the piece of parchment, she placed it in her petticoat pocket, rose to her feet, put the book back on the shelf, and left the library.
