Dear bro:-

I forgot to tell you one thing though.  I have had sent to your add a suit of clothes for which there is  $.70 charges to pay.  I did not have the money and I was afraid to wear them as I knew it would ruin them.  Please pay the charges and keep them for me and I will make it all right when I get there.  Bye Bye

Bro.  George.
