American Literature. Ms. Chaga Spring 2014. 28 January 2014. Welcome to Ms. Chaga’s English class! Daily Question (#1): If you had to lose one of your senses (taste, touch, sight, sound, hearing), which would you choose? Why? Vocab (#2) Syllabus (#3) Letter of Introduction (#4)
**I will check Google Drive tonight at 7. After that it is late.
Gentlemen: I received your letter today by post, in regard to the ransom you ask for the return of my son. I think you are a little high in your demands, and I hereby make you a counter proposition, which I am inclined to believe you will accept. You bring Johnny home and pay me two hundred and fifty dollars in cash, I agree to take him off your hands. You had better come at night, for the neighbors believe he is lost, and I couldn’t be responsible for what they would do to anyone they saw bringing him back.
