I do hope that this letter reaches you in good health and spirits. I know I don’t live far but with how much Michael and I have been traveling these days it has been almost a year since I have seen you. How is your little girl? I presume she is growing like a weed and driving you absolutely crazy. I hear Jordan Baker is staying with you, how is our dear friend Jordan doing? I miss you both so much! I saw her play in a tournament in South Hampton around 3 months ago, but alas she was so busy we were unable to entertain her. I have not spoken to her in person since your wedding day. We looked so beautiful in those lavender bridesmaids’ dresses you chose. They really brought out my eyes don’t you think? Oh what an occasion your wedding was. And on that note I will get to the point as to why I have written this letter to you.
Daisy, I am concerned for your happiness and well being. You have not been happy with your life since day one of your marriage to Tom Buchanan. I have seen your spark go from a giant fireworks display in the sky to a small flame from a candle about to die. I pray that you already know about what I am going to tell you and that I am not the first bearer of this most distraught news. I write this letter to inform you, give you strength and courage and bring back the Daisy I know and love. I pray it is taken to heart and not taken in anger. Please read this letter in its entirety.
I know that in August following your wedding there was a car accident involving Tom and a chambermaid from the Santa Barbra Hotel in the papers. I do not recall it going any further in the papers due to the belief that Tom paid them to stay quiet. I have recently heard some most distressing things regarding Tom and another woman. I try not to take rumors seriously, but I have from some most reliable sources that Tom is in fact cheating on you. I have heard it from multiple friends and acquaintances. Michael himself has in fact seen Tom out with this woman that others speak of; I myself have not seen anything. I am sorry I did not say anything to you when I spoke to you on the phone a couple of weeks ago I tried to say something but could not, I just did not know how to say it over the phone. So I write this letter and all the while wish I could do this in person. I do not know how long this has been going on or if this has happened before. I know he has an apartment with her in New York and that she is married also. She does not run in our circles and is much less fortunate than us. I do not know much more about her person other than she is not attractive and is on the thicker side. I have heard that he takes her to all the new restaurants and the best and biggest parties in New York. He flaunts her as if she is a prized trophy. You should be on his arm at these parties or he should be at home with his family if it so suits, not out on the town with some floozy.
It is generally accepted practice to include a cover (or covering) letter, together with your resume and any other documentation that you forward to the employer as part of a job application. Your covering letter essentially provides an explanation of why you are communicating with the employer. Imagine a prospective employer’s confusion if they received your resume without a covering letter ...
I do not know why Tom would cheat on you. You are a wonderful doting, devoted and loving wife and excellent mother. You are the most beautiful person inside and out I have ever met. There is no reason other than gluttony and greed that any man would cheat on his wife. Tom will burn for this, in this life and his after.
Daisy I do not know of what things you know of and what you do not. I love you so much and only want you to be happy. I wish that you would tell Tom that if he does not straighten up his act and stop this indiscretion with this woman and any others he may have, that you will leave him. Tell him you will pack your things and your little girl and be gone forever if he does not stop his foolishness immediately. I do not think that cornering Tom and giving him an ultimatum will do any good; if anything it may have the opposite effect. He must know that you will not sit back and let others view you as a push over and you will not put up with this affair. You deserve better, and to be treated right. The only way I see you being happy is leaving Tom. This will be the hardest thing you have ever done, but you can do it. Do it for your little girl. Don’t let her grow up and let her see a man treat a woman like he treats you. She will think it’s ok for a man to treat her or any woman that way and will end up just as unhappy as you are right now. Let her see and know what real love is. I don’t even know if you know what real love is. Give yourself a chance to be loved with no fear and no limits.
I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed. I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live - that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life. ” -Dan Millman (author of The Way of the ...
I know he has touched you in anger and would doing it again, so any confrontation must take place with witnesses and with someone with more authority than Tom. I do not think that Tom will regard your threat of leaving him as serious and will laugh it off. You will need to stand your ground and not back down. I have spoken to our family attorney; he believes that you have a strong case to file for a divorce. He is in fact breaking the law and is committing adultery; this will not bode well for him in court. You will need to show that you are trying to make your marriage work that you have asked him to stop the affair. You will need to prove to the courts that it is Tom who does not want to work it out for them to rule in your favor. Tom is not being wise about this indiscretion. He is seen in public with her all the time, there are plenty of witnesses. You will have no problem getting your divorce. Because he is the one committing adultery you will have no problem receiving a nice settlement along with alimony and child support so you will not need to worry about money. Beyond having a legal stand you must be strong at heart to do this. Daisy you once were one of the strongest people I knew. I need you to find your strength, your anger, and your pride. I do not believe you can and or will ever be happy in your marriage to Tom.
Please try to view this from the outside looking in. What if Michael was cheating on me? What if he had a woman that he rented an apartment to share? I would pray that you would see this as unjust and low and that you would tell me what was happening. If I was being blind you would throw my ignorance in my face. If I knew and chose to ignore that you would make me pay attention. How do you think others see you and Tom? Do they talk about what a great marriage the two of you have? Do they wish they could be as happy as the two of you are? No they do not. They look at you and see a sad lonely woman that is too weak and pathetic to stand up for herself and her happiness. Do not think that you will be viewed down upon for being a divorced woman, all know of Toms transgressions and would never look down on you for getting rid of that cheating bastard and putting him in his rightful place. It is very hard to describe the anger and sadness that is crushing my heart right now.
Genetic Engineering Two years ago Scottish scientists announced that they had successfully cloned a sheep. They named it dolly and it was an exact copy of the original sheep. Is cloning morally right? Is it ethical? Some people think that it is wrong and that it shouldn't be practiced on any animal. In this report I will tell you about genetics, cloning and whether I think it is wrong or right. ...
I have thought of where you would go when this transpires and I think that you should move in with your cousin Nick. You said that his roommate had bailed on him and that he had a little house to himself, I believe you said over in West Egg. If anyone would help it would be your family and I think he just adores you. You will have alimony and child support coming in so you will probably not even need Nicks help but I think it would be better for you to not be alone.
I have heard that Mr. Jay Gatsby purchased a mansion in West Egg. I know you had a “thing” with him sometime prior to Tom. You received a letter from Gatsby prior to the bridal dinner. The contents of that letter made you so distraught you were ready to call off your wedding. I do not know what was said in that letter, nor do I want to know. It is clear that you had feelings for Jay and that those feelings may still linger. Have you seen him or gone to one of his outrageous parties he throws every weekend. His parties are known all across the North East. I hear he is some sort of trader and is doing very well for himself these days.
I have heard rumors that Jay is still in love with you and that he may have moved to West Egg just be near you, to see you. Maybe you two could rekindle your spark. If he adores you as it sounds like he might, he would treat you like a queen. I am not trying to push you into something so soon I am just planting the idea in your head. Please Daisy I beg, follow your heart today like you should have on the eve of your wedding.
