I just received the first letter from Sonja for rather a long time. ‘Twas so rude! And so insulting! I shall quote her exactly:
“Dear Rachel, My dear, you won’t mind me saying this I hope, but you really must work on your handwriting. I mean, when I opened up your letter to try and read it, all I could see was a great sprawling black mess of lines and splotches!”
Honestly! What can I possibly say to that? Granted, that was before my writing greatly improved, but to put it so bluntly and rudely! I was shocked and hurt when I read that, to say the least! And just when I was beginning to think she was nice enough to be friends with again! She also continues to say rude things about where I live! (I quote her words exactly)
“I would never be able to rest at night whilst fearing for my very life as pirate ships and tsunamis swarm around in my head to the crashing waves full of seaweed and clams. I should be quite sick, I expect!”
I am sorry to bother you with my complaints about Sonja, but don’t you think it was very rude and insulting of her to say those things? I can only speak to you, my dearest friend, about it though. If I were to share this information with the likes of William, he would probably reply with: “Well, your handwriting is a jolly great mess, and what is so wrong with pirates and clams? I find them fascinating!” Does not that seem the sort of thing that an insensitive little boy would say? O my, how rude of Prissy Polly to eat the whole turkey? I cannot say I am surprised though. She really is the limit. Did you hear her sing the national anthem in her exam? Miss Samantha is probably the only person who resisted covering her ears. Does Polly write to you? If so, what kinds of things does she say? Do tell.
Well, I must set down my quill as my leisure time has ended. Write as soon as possible, my dear!
Your best friend forever,
