MY DEAR GRANDSON, Your letter made your Grandfather very happy. He was happy to hear from you; happy to learn that you were well and to see that you could write so pretty a letter. He sent it to Grandmother in South Carolina, that she might be made happy too by reading it.
You must tell your sister, that she must learn to write too, and that I wish to get a letter from her. You must also kiss her for Grandfather.
