‘Thank You’ To The Stranger Who Mailed My Lost Letter

I almost never write thank you letters, especially to people I don’t know. The reason I’m writing this letter is because last week I was pretty upset. I was in a rush to go to work and I was running late. I grabbed a letter I was going to mail and stuffed it in my coat. The letter, already addressed and stamped, had a $55 gift card to Target for a friend in Texas. She had won the gift card through a contest I had put together. I quickly ran to catch my bus. Almost every day I take the #5 Metro Transit bus to work. Once I got to my stop at WCCO Radio, I reached into my pocket and felt nothing, the letter was gone.
