Example:
Dear Cousin Ida,

I want to tell you about the adventures that I have had in Alice and Wonderland!
I first met Alice when she was running after the White Rabbit. He was so funny with his little vest and pocket watch! Then Alice did a silly thing, she saw a bottle on a table and she drank it! It made her very small. Then she went into a garden and got turned into a mushroom! Then, and you will laugh, she went back to a little girl and had a tea party with a Dormouse, and a Mad Hatter! She then played croquet with the Queen of Hearts! But then it was time to go and she woke up. Did you believe the story? It was fun, don’t you think?

Best wishes,
Dorothy
