Dear Penelope and Elaine,
My two darlings, you must know that I think of you every day and love you very much. I think of all those sunny days when we would take Bushy for long walks. Bushy would run up and down with the two of you, how is he? Has our puppy grown? I can imagine. He probably is half my size by now. What about Miss Pumpkin, your doll, Elaine? Are you and Miss Pumpkin still having tea parties at the back of the garden, with the tea set I gave you last Christmas? How is school going? Have you been good girls and bahaved in class? What new things have you learnt? Penelope are you still writing in your diary?
I will see you soon and then we shall go for long walks with Bushy. Look after your mother for me.
Lots of love your dear old father xxx
