Alas, for those halcyon days of my youth, when my writing was far more pointed and concise:
The sad thing is that my handwriting hasn’t improved. This is, however, the best apostrophe I have ever written. While we’re at it, how much money did I actually receive there? And what was the rest of the family doing while I was hitting the California tourist highlights? I guess I was very independent at six and a half.
Thanks to my brother for digging this up.
