      I hope this letter finds you well. The letter you wrote me last week, offering to send me to vacation language school in England, was received with much delight in our household, but none are more excited and thankful than myself. I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am at the prospect of spending six weeks in England at language school! Thank you for the wonderful offer, Uncle Samuel. Needless to say, I am more than happy to take you up on the generous offer and am writing to tell you that I would be happiest attending the Belleview School in North England for the six-week course.
