they're taking Jonathan away. I can't believe they're going to, after what happened with Nathaniel. Are they such heartless beasts? I am going to do everything I can to keep him.
I heard what happened to Mother from Josie. Is everything alright back home? I'm sorry I can't come visit, but I'm sure you understand the reasons. Please give everyone my kindest regards and well-wishes.
I hope to hear from you soon, and you can expect a longer letter next time. With all that is troubling me, I cannot muster the energy.
(P.S. The first letter! I'm sorry if it's not all that good, people.)
