Well Mom, this will be the last you hear from me for a while. You take care and I'll try to be back soon. I can't say more, except that Amos didn't come up with the ransom like he told you he would.

But don't cry, dear Mother. Even though they shove burning splinters under my fingernails again, even though they chop off my fingers and toes joint by joint, even though they make me listen to "Muskrat Love" all day and all night, I will focus on you and I will pull through because what I learned at your knee has given me the strength to pull through because I know that it could be worse. And remember, it's all Amos' fault that I will be a crippled wreck, my keen mind dulled to the level of a Southern Californian. The next time you hear from me I'll probably be panhandling, if I survive at all.
