I much rather be home then [sic] to see all the shows in the world. I don't mind being in this place but when I think I am in for something I didn't have any thing to do with, I like to blow my top, but as you say in your letter, is [sic] what I think of too, and that [sic] what stop me, because I am not only thinking of myself, but if my friend's [sic] as well.
