What shocking news to me when I was told by Mr. Lewis that you could not pass the entrance examination. This means you have to wait for another year to attend the next entrance examination. I quite understand how you feel now. Still you have many more chances to try. So I hope that you will not take this to heart, and will get ready to try again. I am sure you will easily succeed nexttime.
I just can’t tell you how sorry I was to learn of your accident. Your family tells me that your are progressing nicely, and that you’ll be out of the hospital in about ten days, I’m certainly relieved to know that!
In the next day or so you’ll receive a little package from Margaret and me. I hope you like it, and that it will help to pass the time more pleasantly.
With every good wish for your swift recovery.
Dear Mrs. Corbin,
I was so sorry to learn of your illness. You must hurry and get well!Everybody in the neighborhood misses you, and we’re all hoping you’ll be back soon.
Mr. Burke joins me in sending best wishes for your speed recovery.
