Daisy got roaring drunk, cried uncontrollably, threw her expensive pearls which were a present from Tom in the trash, and almost called off her wedding. She was so despondent that they had to throw her in a bath to sober her up and force her into her dress.

She’d received a mysterious letter that made her act this way. The way Jordan has set up the story leads the reader to believe the letter is from Gatsby. As readers we’re not sure what the letter said, but we do know this note from Gatsby almost made her throw her wedding away before it even started.
