Dear Filona Pyrochurn,

 

I’m sorry it took me so long to respond, I was on vacation in Florida.

Frank Coloin, my lawyer, gave me your address, after I told him that I wanted a friend, but he said that they lived in Oregon, while it sounds like you live in Colorado. I don’t mean to be suspicious, but how do I know you aren’t a spy who intercepted the other person’s letter and are trying to get information out of me? I apologize, but until you reply with a reasonable explanation or meet me in person, I am afraid I cannot give you any personal information apart from my name, which you seem to know already anyway.
