Dear Brother & Sister,

How are you getting along with those kids.  I hope they won’t worry you.  So you had some company.  Poor Willie.  I feel sorry for him.  The children don’t say a work about coming home.  How is John getting along from Kate

Penny for Your Thoughts: How did you spend summers when you were young?  Did you visit any relatives? Where did you go?
