親愛的長腿叔叔:

  

    昨天與大一的籃球隊比賽,我們羸了。當然大家都很高興,可是,哦,要是能打贏大三學姐就好了!那樣我寧願可打到全身青一塊紫一塊,包上金縷梅繃帶,躺在床上一個星期。

 

    莎莉邀請我到她家去過聖誕節。她住在痳薩諸塞州的伍斯特市。她真好。我很想去。我從未到過別人家裹,除了洛克威洛。可是森普爾夫婦是成年人,而且老了,所以不算。麥克布萊德家有很多孩子(至少有兩三個),還有爸爸、媽媽、奶奶和一隻安哥拉貓。真是個美滿幸福的家庭!打點行李出遠門,比留下來有意思多了,這前景使我興奮異常。

 

    第七節課到了,我得趕緊去排練。我參加了感恩節的演出。我演一位塔樓王子,身穿紫色上衣,頭上有金黃色的捲髮。多有意思。

 

 

你的朱蒂

Dear Daddy-Long-Legs,

 

     We beat the freshmen at basketball yesterday.  Of course we’re pleased―but, oh, if we could only beat the juniors!  I’d be willing to be black and blue all over and stay in bed a week in a witch-hazel compress.

     Sallie has invited me to spend the Christmas vacation with her.  She lives in Worcester, Massachusetts.  Wasn’t it nice of her?  I shall love to go.  I’ve never been in a private family in my life, except at Lock Willow, and the Semples were grown-up and old and don’t count.  But the McBrides have a houseful of children (anyway two or three) and a mother and father and grandmother, and an Angora cat.  It’s a perfectly complete family!  Packing your trunk and going away is more fun than staying behind.  I’m terribly excited at the prospect.

     Seventh hour―I must run to rehearsal.  I’m to be in the Thanksgiving theatricals.  A prince in a tower with a velvet tunic and yellow curls.  Isn’t that a lark?

 

 

Yours,

J.A.

 

 

 

    你想知道我長得怎樣嗎?附上我們三人的照片,是李奧娜拉˙芬頓拍的。

 

    面帶笑容的是莎莉。身材高挑、目直一切的是朱麗雅。嬌小,頭髮被風吹起到臉上的是朱蒂她其實比照片還漂亮,可是太陽亮得她睜不開眼睛。

 

星期六

     Do you want to know what I look like?  Here’s a photograph of all three that Leonora Fenton took. 

     The light one who is laughing is Sallie, and the tall one with here nose in the air is Julia, and the little one with the hair blowing across her face is Judy―she is really more beautiful than that, but the sun was in her eyes.
