    My dear dear Mother,
    If you don’t let me come home I die—I am all over ink,
    and my fine clothes have been spoilt—I have been tost in a blanket, and seen a ghost.
    I remain, my dear dear Mother,
    Your dutiful and most unhappy son,
    Freddy.
    P.S. Remember me to my Father.
    —Frederick Reynolds (18th century)
