First of all, you seem far too advanced for a child as young as you claim to be. Your
letter made me very nervous and suspicious because my daughter is your age (or, your alleged age) and at the top of her class, yet I am positive that she is not yet capable of the diction and syntax of which you are capable. Therefore, I’m choosing to end our
correspondence here because I believe you to be some sort of criminal, fishing for a victim. You are not, certainly, a high school student. I do not believe there is a "project," at least not one of the nature you describe, and if I were you, I would be very, very careful of how I proceed. I have taken your original letter and replaced it with this one, and by the time you read this, you letter will have been thoroughly examined by me and my colleagues at the San Diego Detective Bureau.
