Letter to Aunt Lilly
Dear Aunt Lilly,
How have you been? I’ve missed you so much. I long to see you again.
Right now I am on the Mayflower searching for a land to settle in. This ship is cold, damp, slippery, and wet. I try to find comfort but it is so congested there is little room to relax. Plus the food is not good. Some of our food had spoiled and some had been stolen by pesky mice.
It is hard to sleep but even with this torture we will not give up. I have faith that we will find this new land.
We had lots of problems on this ship before like strong, furious storms. People are getting sick, but nobody has died yet. All these problems, though, are not compare to this other problem. This other problem was dreadful. This problem had something to do with the captain.
One beautiful day, with no storms, everybody felt relaxed at last. Just when I was feeling relaxed too, something terrible happened. The captain started coughing and choking. Sailors rushed to his side.
People started to panic, including me. My father, mother, and brother must have heard the commotion and rushed toward me. “What happened?” My mother asked. Soon I heard others asking the same questions my mother had just asked.
All of a sudden the captain fell to his knees. People gathered around him but the sailors urged them to back off and that they could handle it. When they looking back at the suffering captain, their faces changed. I could tell they didn’t know what to do.
Before anybody can do anything else, a man came out running with a bottle of liquid, medicine. He quickly helps the captain and feeds him the medicine. The captain closed his eyes. Everybody watched. He choked and continued coughing with his eyes still closed. People hesitated. Then he opened them. “I feel better, thank you!” The captain said.
Everybody cheered, including me and my family. We soon figure that the man with the medicine was a doctor. People have claimed he had helped their sick ones before including them selves.
It was a miracle! First the captain was choking then he was fine. It was like nothing ever happened!
I am very glad that our captain is okay. Oh, and do not worry, me and my family is okay, too. We are not sick like others just yet. Any ways I hope you get this letter and I hope you are okay, too!
P.S. Come visit us when we find this new land.
