    Kaka Freddy,
    nadhani napaswa kukuita baba kwa umri wako
    lakini nivumilie kwani napendezwa kukuita kaka kwa kuwa u wa nyumbani Uchaggani.

    Mdogo wako (INVO)
    nina jambo liniumizalo moyoni.
    Natamani nipate dawa yake niuburudishe moyo wangu,
    nalo ni ‘Guiter’.

    Nimekuwa nikitamani kumiliki japo 1.

    Nikiwa nalo nijifunze mapigo kwa bidii na kwa kadiri ya wepesi wa vidole vyangu.

    NITAKUSANYA NGUVU NIJINUNULIE KIBURUDISHO HIKI.
    (Nakuonea wivu Mangi Freddy,
    kwani huenda ulilipata mapema utotoni)
