Letter to a President

My good friend Roosvelt,
I don't know very English, but I know as much as write to you.
I like to hear the radio, and I am very happy, because I heard in it that you will be President for a new (periodo).
I am twelve years old.
I am a boy but I think very much, but I do not think that I am writing to the President of the United States.
If you like, give me a ten dollars bill green American, in the letter, because never, I have not seen a ten dollar bill green American and I would like to have one of them.
I don’t know very English but I know very much Spanish but you know very English because you are American but I am not American.
Thank you very much. Good by.
Your friend,
Fidel Castro

If you want iron to make your ships I will show to you the bigest (minas) of iron of the land. They are in Mayari, Oriente, Cuba.
