I guess I have no other option but go. But what about Lavinia. She's the one who's meant to go not me.
Please just wait a few more minutes.
Get on board now!
We will put your luggage away.
Get on board.
Letty, Lavinia and their dad wait at the shore for the ship to come because Letty's older sister, Lavinia, is going to Sydney, Australia.
Sir it's not me who's meant to be on this ship it's meant to be my sis-
What's your name miss?
Their dad and Lavinia tell Letty, the youngest sister, to look after Lavinia's hope chest (her luggage). A while passes by and Letty is wondering whats taking them so long. After about 1 1/2 hours passes by they still haven't come. Letty gets scared and starts to worry.
Lavinia has come back!
Sir please go back to shore my sister has came back. She needs to come on-board to.
Two sailors come up to Letty and tell her to get on board. They thought she was Lavinia. Letty told the two sailors to wait a couple of minutes so they did but after those minutes were up they got annoyed and told her to get on board.
Hi there, my name is Letty.
Yea that would be nice.
We should become friends.
Hi, my name is Jemima.
Once Letty was on the ship the sailors asked her name. Letty's name matched up with her sister's name since they both started with the letter l and both had the same last name. She tried to tell the sailor that it was meant to be her sister on board but they didn't bother to listen because she was poor.
Lavinia had finally come back and she saw Letty on the ship so she started to yell "Letty, Letty". Letty heard them so she told the sailors to go back to shore. SO then Lavinia also got on the ship and headed of to Sydney.
Letty met a girl the same age as her named Jemima. They became friends. From that day on they would play with eachother. But Letty didn't know that Jemima was very bossy and mean.
