C.S. Lewis | The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe | 1950

To Peter,

I greatly admire your courage. I was terrified when I heard of your encounter with the wolf, but extremely gladdened to hear of your great triumph against such a formidable foe. I do hope you remember to clean your sword in the future. As Aslan said, the consequences of ignoring that most necessary act may prove disastrous!

Please also extend my congratulations to you and your siblings for vanquishing the White Witch from Narnia. My most especial thanks indeed to your brother Edmund, who is also to be commended for his honorable deeds. You are indeed a most extraordinary family.

Sincerely, and with great admiration,
Jessica Knebel
