Hi Gwendolyn,

“I’m so glad you had a good time! Your presence, and incredibly personal portrayal added so much to the day. Thank you for bringing this important part of history to our visitors. Thank you also for being willing to work in one of our historic houses. I know it is not your usual mode, but I find it helps our visitors to feel a sense of personal connection, they are more likely to ask questions, or admit ignorance if the setting seems more intimate.


We will definitely have to do it again next year!”
