I stop sending letters because the mailman would show up at your door and refuse to give you the letter because I had not put enough postage on it. I think it was the Gingerchews that I kept putting in there.
Once Papa and I were on the phone with Ephraim when the mailman came to the door with a letter from home, to ask for $2.05. I knew that there were stamps inside the envelope that he held out to tantalize you. If only you could have opened the letter and given him the stamps, but instead he took the letter back to the post office until you could come up with the money.
I'm so sorry.
