London 25/03/11 Dear Lois, What a great sister you are! With all you have to do at college, you still found time to write to me. Your job at the restaurant sounds like hard work. Your story of how you knocked the peas and catsup over the hamburgers was wonderful. Did your customers really insist on eating them that way? Beth and I combined those ingredients for lunch. We called them "Hamburgers a la Lois." Your issues of Science Magazine are still being delivered here. I read them first before sending them to you. Maybe reading them will help my grades in science.

Good luck, Lois; I know that you will do well. Love, Mark
