Dear Alice,

I hope you will pardon me for this very short letter, but I hope you will understand my feelings. As you know the outcome of my trial, I will not go into the details. I am sorry that things turn [sic] out the way they did as I had very rozy [sic] expectations for the future. Did you ever make a castle out of sand or mud when you were a very small girl in pigtails and took much pain and trouble to erect it, and all of a sudden a bigger kid came over and destroyed it for you? Well my feelings are somewhat similar. It seems like the whole world just folded up on me, and there is nothing I can do about it.

I only hope that our friendship will be on the same par as before. I don't know what else to write excepting of course to thank you again for your kind interest and your nice letters. Until I hear from you again I Will Remain

yes please try and come see me. my tank now is 10-B1
