I found this letter inside a used book that I bought in Germany (the books is English). The letter is obviously a final contact prior to an inevitable parting ways between Leo and Josh. You can almost feel Leonard’s hope and anguish in every sentence. I really felt sad for Leonard. I did wonder why he typed the letter (from the looks of it on the manual typewriter) instead of writing it long hand. I am also left wondering about his thought process in choosing this particular title to include as a gift with the letter: “Dungeon, Fire and Sword”, a history of the Templar Knights during the crusades. I would have thought poetry might have been a better choice. Finally, since there is a reference to Bastille Day, perhaps Josh was French. Does that mean the book traveled from New York to Germany by way of France?
This sad little grammar exercise came from a notebook I found in a closet at my parents’ house. Everything else in the notebook was written in Japanese, and since no one in my family knows Japanese we really don’t know where it came from. I thought it was interesting/strange that this would be the only English.
I found this note in a book that turned out to be journal I got a few years ago. The house was very nice and in great neighborhood. Makes you realize that no matter what we have, we always have “needs.”
