We Get Letters

Sometimes we get a letter that demands its own page. Below is such a letter. Be forewarned, punctuation marks were doled out in a very spartan manner, making some parts open to different interpretations. The original letter was written on the back of a period grocery bag to add to its authenticity. Oh, and we DID agree to Sonny's terms! Enjoy.
