On the last day of school before the holidays the teacher showed the class a letter she had received that morning
"You remember Wanda Petronski, the gifted little artist who won the drawing contest?Well she has written me and i am glad to know where she lives because now i can send her medal . I want to read her letter to you."
Dear Miss Mason,How are you and Room Thirteen? Please tell the girls they can keep the hundred dresses because in my new house i have a hundred new ones, all lined up in my closet. I'd like that girl Peggy to have the drawing of green dress with red trimming and her friend Maddie to have the blue one, for Christmas. I miss that school and my new teacher does not equalize with you, Merry Christmas to you and everybody
On their way home from school
I hope so,
"Boy! this shows she really likes us. It shows she got our letter and this is her way of saying that everything's all right and that's that.
She went home and pinned her drawing
Maddie sat down on her bed and looked at the drawing
