archival letter, Uncle Trever to Jackie

 “I resented Aunt Ida for always favoring
the first born. When your dad and I were
going to town school for awhile and we
boarded across the street, she’d always
have a nice surprise for Ron like a skip
rope or a ball and jacks when we came in
from school. I’d drop my lower lip and
she’d hasten to say that when I got to be
Ronald’s age I’d get the goodies too. I
knew I’d never catch up to Ronald’s age.”
