1 I arrived here yesterday, and my first task is to assure my dear sister of my welfare and increasing confidence in the success of my undertaking.
2 Farewell, my dear, excellent Margaret.
3 You may deem me romantic, my dear sister, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend.
4 Nothing could equal my delight on seeing Clerval; his presence brought back to my thoughts my father, Elizabeth, and all those scenes of home so dear to my recollection.
5 You have been ill, very ill, and even the constant letters of dear kind Henry are not sufficient to reassure me on your account.
6 Little alteration, except the growth of our dear children, has taken place since you left us.
7 She is very clever and gentle, and extremely pretty; as I mentioned before, her mien and her expression continually remind me of my dear aunt.

9 Now, dear Victor, I dare say you wish to be indulged in a little gossip concerning the good people of Geneva.
10 I have written myself into better spirits, dear cousin; but my anxiety returns upon me as I conclude.

12 When I reflect, my dear cousin," said she, "on the miserable death of Justine Moritz, I no longer see the world and its works as they before appeared to me.
13 I am happy to remark, my dear son, that you have resumed your former pleasures and seem to be returning to yourself.
14 My dear father, reassure yourself.
15 The expression of your sentiments of this subject, my dear Victor, gives me more pleasure than I have for some time experienced.
