I feel miserable because I have to keep writing for money

A college student wrote a letter home,

Dear folks, I feel miserable because I have to keep writing for money. I feel ashamed and unhappy. I have to ask for another hundred, but every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me.

Your son, Marvin.

P.S. I felt so terrible I ran after the mailman who picked this up in the box at the corner. I wanted to take this letter and burn it. I prayed to God that I could get it back. But it was too late.

A few days later he received a letter from his father.

It said, Your prayers were answered. Your letter never came!
