Salvatore Boarding House,
I remember when you were barely 10 years old and I had asked you which college you wanted to study and you said, Harvard. You had not only shocked me but also your parents. And now look at you going to Harvard that also on scholarship! I guess congratulations are in order. Your aunt and I are very proud of you, son. You are the first kid and our entire family generation to be able to bag a scholarship and all of this couldn’t have happened if you hadn’t regularly burned the midnight oil. After all, hard work does pay off.
I wanted to give a present when I returned but I could hardly wait. So, along with this letter, you will see a gold watch with your name engraved on it along with your birthdate. Hope it is to your liking or we could always exchange it for whatever else you would prefer. Wade is also very proud of his elder brother and he looks up to you and hopes to be like someday. Your school teachers must be also very proud of you.
I hope you have packed everything for your new life ahead of you. This is going to be an interesting turn for the better but never take anything for granted and bear every loss or win with the same emotion. Stay strong and stay focused as these years will shape your future. May god bless you and give you courage. If any trouble don’t hesitate to ask for help. Stay in touch. Take care.
Your Loving Uncle,
