Selma, being obliged to stay in the hot, dusty city with her sick mother, did not have many interesting things to write about, but does her letter have a mournful, disconsolate tone? In writing a letter,remember these four suggestions:--1. Be natural; that is, write as you would talk. 2. Try to fill your letter with pleasant, entertaining thoughts. 3. Consider what will interest your correspondent. Some friends might wish to hear about your school work, or your games, or your parties, while others might wish to know of your music lessons, etc. 4. Show an interest in your correspondent by asking her a few questions about herself and her home. Copy the suggestions above into your notebook, and then try to remember and to use them. From your own address, write a letter to Elsie Fields, who lives in a little country town where you spent last summer. Imagine that she wrote you last month, telling about the good times in her town, skating, coasting, tobogganing, but said that she was obliged to remain indoors with a sprained ankle. Tell her about your dancing school, music lessons, or an afternoon at a moving picture show. Express a sympathetic interest in her affliction. When the letter is finished, see if you have covered the four suggestions mentioned above. When writing to members of your family or to intimate friends, tell them all the little " everyday" happenings that you and they would enjoy talking over if you were together. If you express yourself naturally, your letter will be readable. Remember that a well-written letter is a compliment to the receiver. 89. HINTS ON LETTER WRITING Young...
