How many candles do you use? We ate Chinese food today.
June 1st, 2008
You are the meanest person ever! My handwriting is better than yours!! Both my Mama and Papa are lazy. No, I don't sleep through floods.
June 2nd, 2008
Your handwriting is getting worse. Did you break your hand or something?
Did you know our house flooded and I slept through the whole thing. Do you ever sleep through floods? Why is your daddy in a towering temper? My daddy is just lazy.

February 29th, 2008
I don't think you should call a chicken "cow". That's just silly, didn't you know that? My mommy is singing a song about seals right now. Does your Mama sing about seals? How is all your flour and salt? I have one bag of each.
There are mouses everywhere!

Yes, I do like animals, especially horses! My favorite movie is Spirit. Guess what?! I watched some of Lord of the Rings yesterday when my mommy wasn’t looking. It’d be too scary for you, little Rebecca. Well, write back soon!
October 4th, 2007
I didn’t do very well on my Proper School exams but my mommy loves me anyway. My hay and firewood are almost gone. What about you? How is llama?
June 7th, 2007
Did you like how you did on your Proper School exams? I am really excited for next term! What do you think we are going to learn? Trolls sound interesting! How is your hay and firewood?
April 30th, 2007
Why thank you about my good handwriting skills. Orange tea is good with honey but orange juice is better. Trolls are not rattlesnakes they are like humans, except green and hairy and scary.
April 27th, 2007
What does orange tea taste like? Have you ever tried devil’s club? Josefina keeps complaining about how Felicity drones on and on in her letters. You have really good handwriting, by the way! No, I don’t have trolls, what do they look like? Do they look like a rattlesnake? Those creep around at night up here! Write back pwease!
February 8th, 2007
Yes I did have my tea party today, it was a lovely affair of candles and flowers and we drank orange tea.
At the moment I am listening to the beautiful wind chimes outside and the trolls sneaking about. What are you listening to? Do you have trolls up there? Please write back!
November 7th, 2006
I got your letter last year and I didn’t write back because I’ve be to busy. How are you? How are all your little pumpkins? What r you being for Halloween?
September 14th, 2006
Peder is at my rancho right now and the whole household is going ga-ga over him. I can’t wait to see you on trading day! Have you had your tea party yet? I hope your fields don’t frost!
September 3rd, 2006
I like the game class too. Peder is getting even more annoying because everyone is noticing how good he is and they ooh and aah which gets on my nerves. Wow good job on your contest. Your garden is beautiful? It’s almost trading day, hooray!
August 6th, 2006
I like the class when you play a game. How is you-now-wat? Still getting the all the attention? My garden is fine, I got 4th in a contest! How are you?
May 28th, 2006
Isn’t my handwriting so nice and small? I just finished working on my sampler forProper School. What is your favorite class at Proper School? I like the one where we learn to set tables. How is your garden and the sticky butterflies? I tried to make Peder disappear today by covering him all up. But Mommy got mad. Anna is really mad at the rooster for some reason.
Write back, BRITTA
April 19th, 2006
Yes I do speak Spanish! Who is your grandma? Does she speak English? My abuelita speaks Spanish!
March 8th, 2006
You know Spanish now? Wow! So does this mean you can talk to Spanish people now? From Spanishland? Wow! Since I know some Swedish I can talk to my grandma Mormor because she can’t speak American. You should push Juan and Antonio around if they are mean to llama!
March 5th, 2006
Francisca is teaching Spanish to me and my sisters. It’s fun! I only have $5.00. I LOVE beef! Is so good! You’re going to have a baby? Wow! I love my llama a lot, he is so cute. But Juan and Antonio always push him around. Do you like beef?
February 18th, 2006
Hi Rebecca, how is your money? My cow Daisy is doing just fine. She is kind of sad though because we have to kill all her babies because your Mommy wants so much beef. But don’t feel bad about it. We’d have to do it anyway. At least I don’t have to watch. I hope you enjoy your beef. Okay, my chores say:
Write back to letters
and that’s all. So that’s all except, what are you doing lately? How is your llama? What do llamas do? What are they good for? All my animals have usefulness. Have you ever had a little baby? Because I’m going to have one. Hopefully it’ll be a useful little pet.
September 18th, 2005

Your last letter was really weird. You kept saying “oh you’re so cute Britta” and that was really annoying. Are you going to Proper School? I am. I wouldn’t miss it for anything. What chores do you do? I have to feed Daisy, get the mail, feed the chickens and all kinds of stuff.
July 26th, 2005
Oh, you are such a sweet little girl! My family is fine. Better not stand under skylights (if you have any) very much because usually if Juan and Antonio do your roof, the roof falls down in a day or two! Well dear little Britta, I must go have fancy bread with the rest of my family, write as soon as possible, dearest!
July 8th, 2004
I’m feeling terrible! Right now I’m lying in the hospital bed with a terrible fever and a broken arm! What’s your favorite movie? Mine’s Peter Pan! Do you have a bank account? I do! Do you like my stationary? Do you like llamas? I LOVE them! Well write back as soon as possible!
January 19th, 2004
How are you? My arm has completely healed! And now I am learning to ride! My first lesson is going to be at camp turtle cove! I am so excited! I like your stationary. Did you get it for Christmas? Guess what? Clara’s sick! And she’s been groaning all day. Isn’t that horrible? I think it is. I just did the laundry and I’m tired, so goodbye!
December 29th, 2003
How are you? I am not well. I’ve got a broken arm. What did you get for Christmas? I got loads. How did you like the cookies? Have a happy New Year.
June 19th, 2003
How R you? I am sorry I answered your letter so late. When we go to Proper Schoolagain I was wondering if you would accompany me? I hope you can read this, my letters are all squished together! I like writing to you too! I am looking forward to ice cream at Clara’s shop today! Maybe we can get together sometime. And have ice cream. Well, byebye.
