I received your letter yesterday. I am pleased to hear that you are about to make a fortune. Unfortunately, I am unable to lend you any money. I can’t spare such a large amount. I have very little in my checking account, and my savings can’t be withdrawn without heavy penalties. Nevertheless, I wish you success in your business ventures.
