Dear Chris,I recall she sent me two bars of chocolate. British "Zero" bars, made with English chocolate from Cadbury, years before Hershey's siphoned it up. I sent her another picture in a small pretty frame.
This really is only a little short letter. I just want to write to tell you that I sent your Christmas present this morning. The problem is my mum sent it by sea so it will be quite a while before you receive it. But when you do please write and tell me the arrival date. I also sent you a postcard or should I say Christmas Card.
My exams start in 3 days time. I've got two weeks of them. So before you hear from me again, I should imagine that it will be very near Christmas.
So that's all. I hope you receive them soon.
If I don't hear from you soon,
If I don't hear from you soon: Have a happy Christmas and New Year!
I would not hear from her again until the calendar rolled over to 1990.
