(Dear Papa!

Although it would be easier for me to show my feelings

if it were possible to express them in musical tones, when in

any case even the best concerto cannot convey

my devotion to you, Dear Papa, I must use the simple

expressions of my heart to pay you the tenderest tribute

of gratitude and filial attachment.)
