I received your letter yesterday. In your letter you have requested me to tell you about the story of a thirsty crow and its ready wit. Here I am going to describe it in short.
It was a hot summer day. A crow became very thirsty and began to fly here and there in search of drinking water. At last, it found a jar but there was very little water at the bottom of the jar. It saw some pebbles beside the pitcher and started to drop the pebbles into the jar one after another. At one time, water came into the mouth of the jar. Then the crow drank water and flew away.
No more today. I am fine. Please write to me soon. With best regards to your parents and love to the youngers.
Your loving friend.
