I hope you are in the best of health, by the grace of God. Please convey my respects to your sister.
I want to express my gratitude to you for changing my life for the good by forgiving me for stealing your candlesticks. With the money I got by selling your silver candlesticks, I started a trading business which is now doing very well.
Inspired by your ideals, I have started a reformatory for ex-convicts. I am giving employment to these ex-convicts by telling them how trading can be carried out profitably. I seek your kind blessings for this new venture.
