But Felicity resolves not to accept the ring. There will be tears...

Dear Kenneth, My prince,

I have anguished all day about your wonderfully kind act of sending me an engagement ring but really I don't think it is right and (please, no arguments!) I feel that I must return it to you when it arrives.

I really do not think that I am ready for the commitment that would go with acceptance of the ring.

I truly don't want to hurt you, and you will probably think me the most terrible of women, but I must do what I feel is right.

Please give me a reliable address to send the ring back to. I am still a bit concerned that the mail sent to the address you gave me before did not arrive. I would hate something as precious as the ring to also not arrive.

Yours full of all sorts of wretched and conflicting emotions,



To see what is right, and not to do it, is want of courage or of principle.

- Confucius
