From wretched “B. B.,” heartfelt remembrances. I am well and hope that
you are well, too.
In particular: Actually, there are no new feelings of mind that must be
written, only images of you and my own pitiful agonies make me want to

Yes, there may be boys these days who have written letters only in order
to gain experience with girls. I can’t say that’s not so. But the connection
