Scrolling through my notebook from Central Fort George elementary school in Prince George, I came across the following. We were practicing the art of letter-writing - so I picked my friend Heather (also ten at the time) and her 8-year old little sister, Audrey, back in my hometown of Pine Falls, Manitoba.
Here it is, verbatim!
I am sorry I haven't written for a long time but I keep on having other things to do.
How is school going? I hope you are doing well. I have started the metric system and we had a test. I got 16 out of twenty.
How is Audrey coming along in school? I hope she's not having any problems.
When you write again please send me your picture.
