Dear Sean,

It was good to finally hear from you in your letter dated May 25. Your father and I are so glad that you were able take a vacation and see something as exciting as the Indianapolis 500. We heard that there was a fire at some kind of building called a pagoda and that some people died. I hope that it didn’t ruin the race for you and your friends.

We have made arrangements to invest the $10,000 you sent your cousin Nicky. We were able to pay off his hospital bills and put the rest aside until he can find a way to support himself again.

Please be careful as you travel back to New Orleans. We will continue to pray for you and your friends safety and continued success.
