Jenny,

I’m visiting a friend in New Orleans. It’s a beautiful city. I love the buildings and the people. I’m having a good time, but a thief broke into my friend’s apartment and stole $130! That’s a lot of money. We called the police, and they are looking for the thief. I’m going home to Springdale tomorrow, and that’s OK with me. I’m really upset about the theft.
