A cursory greeting for Candy

 I am writing you a small lament. You promised me you wouldn't submit me to anymore of your vendetta right? So what do you mean with this "father"? And what do you want to say with "beautiful daughter"Yes certainly, you are beautiful...perhaps(have I made you angry), and I certainly can't ignore that you are my adopted daughter. In effect I forgot. I am still young, a bachelor, but I already have a daughter...it's a thing that surprises me.

 Even the term "adopted daughter" sounds insupportable to my ears. It doesn't seem like it but I am a delicate type (don't laugh!).

Changing the subject, I am heading for Sao Paulo. I'll write to you when I get there. Please tell Miss Pony and Sister Lane that I have done only all that is expected of a good adopted father. Adoptive father? Oh, no! I have said it myself...

Keep well, and greet the children for me!

Albert
