Patricia Collins (neice)

My Dear Patricia,

And the same goes for Marie. Your mother tells me in her letter of June 4th that you can read and write now so I want you to read this letter to Marie. She will understand why I didn't write to her - in a few years she will be able to read too then I'll write to her. I understand that you are quit an accomplished pianist and tap dancer and that you held first place at school for academics (explain, mother). I believe that Marie is as proud of you as I am and would like to see her follow in her sister's footsteps. Your mother was a pianist and always brought home the roses for academics so keep it up and I'm sure your little sister will do

likewise. I heard all about your Christmas party and hope to be there for your next one but that will be nearly impossible as I have work to do right here. Give my love to Michael Jr., Peter, Ralph, Tommy Jr., Paul and Marie. Don't forget mother and Don and Nonna too. For Marie: take good care of Nonna for me and I'll bring home a hurricane tank busker for you.

Your loving uncle,
