My Dear Grand Papa
You do not know what I can do. I am reading the little books you brought me. I hope that I will be able to read very well before you come here. I am very well. I want to see you very much. Cornelia can say a great many of her letters. Virginia is very sprightly and very fat. adieu my Dear Grand papa believe your affections Grand daughter
