There is to be a very special dinner this Friday evening at the manor to welcome your father home at long last. I know you love to be fashionably late, however this is one dinner you really need to be on time for. It will be at the usual time.
The gentleman we were speaking of is indeed coming home. Friday evening we will celebrate with a bit of good food, wine and we hope, the finest of company. Please, join us to welcome Lucius back. Dinner will be served at the normal time, but do come early so we might have a few cocktails prior.
