Dear Aunt Lillie,
The packige you sent us came today.
I was sitting on the porch steps playing rummy
with my new frend freind Jane. She lives
across the street and has a twin brother (!)
Jane says they are NOT identical.
His name is Monroe and wen I called him
Monroe monkee face like Jane does
do you know what my mother (YOUR sister
Nell did? She made me stay in my room
the HOLE afternoon and I had to apaluhgize
besides. That is Not Fair if you ask me.
Anyway Sue was way up in the memosa
tree (spell? You know the one with pink
fethery flowers that tickel your nose?
Anyway I ran and got the sizors. Mother said
I could cut the string but she made me wate
for Sue and let her cut the paper open.
I did get there FURST you know.
