Dear John:

I can’t tell you how pleased I was to receive the letter you wrote me recently in Braille. [Handwritten markings:  xppf28-D “B”] I certainly admire the skill that you must have had to master such a difficult art.

It was nice of you to send me a little speech to help win the election. Your good luck wishes for November mean a lot to me too, and I am very grateful to you for them. I wish I were able to write back to you in Braille, also, but I am sure that one of your teachers will be happy to read this to you. [Handwritten markings: xppf27-B-1]

I hope you’re enjoying your schoolwork and are taking advantage of the fine opportunity that you must have in Watertown. Many thanks again for being so thoughtful. [Handwritten markings: xppf22-C]

With best wishes,

Sincerely,
