My dearest Uncle,
How are u and everyone? Please accept my greatest thanks for your last letter containing good advice which I will use and remember always.
I am also happy and grateful that I have Stockmar; he is very helpful to me and he is very smart and gives me good advice.
The king's state is hopeless; he cannot recover ultimately, yesterday the doctors said that he is very ill and may die in the early hours. I will be very upset if he does as he is very special to me and the palace. Poor old man I love him so; he's always very kind to me and I shouldn’t be ungrateful and devoid of feelings.
Uncle, I have to go to do a lesson; hope u write back soon!
Love you lots J

My Dear awesome lovely Uncle,I received the letter which you sent me to give some clearly and wise advice. My best friend Stockmar gave it to me and for this I say thank you. I hope you’re enjoying yourself and everything is alright back there. I also hope that my cousins and Family are fine too.
I am very grateful to have Stockmar around as he is very useful; he is the only person I trust.
I have some terrible news to tell you, my Uncle is dying, the doctor said he might live until the morning; now here comes the bad news HE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO DIE.
I am not that shocked because I saw it coming. I feel so sorry for him, I wish I could stop him dying because he has always had time for me and was always very patient with me. He is the greatest Uncle I have right now, well except you of course.
I have got a French lesson to attend so I must dash before I get into trouble with Baroness Lehzen.
Lots of love,
P.S I love you (By XX)
