Dear Emily,
I am writing to inform you about the chaos that has occurred in England.
Before I begin, I would like to take the time in asking about your well being of course the well being of your dear beloved sister Patricia. I hope that you are all well and having a great time living in France!
So, as I was saying, all the havoc is about, this Scottish queen called Mary. As you have been living in France, I would not expect you to understand what is happening here in England, so I will try to explain the situation as much as I can.
Mary became queen of Scotland at a tender age of only a couple of weeks old, can you believe! She succeeded her father James V of Scotland who died shortly after she was born. Mary’s mother, Mary of Guise, was from your homeland and as a result, Mary spent most of her childhood years in France. Mary became a Queen of two countries i.e. France and Scotland, because she married Francis II. Unfortunately for her, he died back in 1560, due to an ear infection. When Mary was eighteen, Mary decided to return to Scotland, as the queen. Can you believe this? Not only did she have the nerve to return to Scotland after all this time she also happily took the throne! Oh, how wrong was she, if she thought that this was going to go along smoothly! She was a measly Catholic who had to face the Scottish nobility, many of whom had changed for the better and converted to Protestantism. Mary also had to confront John Knox, who like ourselves despised the Catholics. Some may say that he was formidable but I think that he just said, what all of us were thinking. Don’t you agree?
Mary later married Lord Darnley, I am sure that the marriage had taken place so that they could plot against, Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth. But as they say, what goes around comes around. Since Darnley apparently turned out to be a stupid, vain and boastful drunkard. I suppose she got what she deserved!   That stupid fellow had convinced himself...
