Example text

Yours ever, Judy Dear Daddy-Long-Legs,. Behold me--a Sophomore! I came up last Friday, sorry to leave Lock Willow, but glad to see the campus again. It is a pleasant sensation to come back to something familiar. I am beginning to feel at home in college, and in command of the situation; I am beginning, in fact, to feel at home in the world--as though I really belonged to it and had not just crept in on sufferance. I don't suppose you understand in the least what I am trying to say. A person important enough to be a Trustee can't appreciate the feelings of a person unimportant enough to be a foundling.

I can't believe this is really Judy. You and the Good Lord give me more than I deserve. I must be a very, very, VERY good person to pay. I'm going to be. You'll see. Good night, Judy PS. You should hear the frogs sing and the little pigs squeal and you should see the new moon! I saw it over my right shoulder. 30 LOCK WILLOW, 12th July Dear Daddy-Long-Legs, How did your secretary come to know about Lock Willow? (That isn't a rhetorical question. ) For listen to this: Mr. Jervis Pendleton used to own this farm, but now he has given it to Mrs.

Pendleton reminded me a little of you, Daddy, as you were twenty years ago. You see I know you intimately, even if we haven't ever met! He's tall and thinnish with a dark face all over lines, and the funniest underneath smile that never quite comes through but just wrinkles up the corners of his mouth. And he has a way of making you feel right off as though you'd known him a long time. He's very companionable. We walked all over the campus from the quadrangle to the athletic grounds; then he said he felt weak and must have some tea.
