Dear Johan Strauss

211,165 The High Street,
2nd June 1376

Dear Johan Strauss,

As you have probably heard our dear little town of Hamelin has been rat infested for a couple of months, and they seem to be multiplying and we can’t do anything about it. Ye major and his corporation are just sitting and pretending to think. We are thinking of going on ye protest march to ye mayor and taking our problems to him.

Yours truly,


Teacher’s Comments

Quite good.
