From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Right off the bat, Charlie apologizes for his last letter and the suicidal wishes he recorded.
After he mailed that last letter, Charlie passed out in the snow. He tells his reader that this—his falling asleep in strange places—used to happen a lot.
His family takes him home and takes care of him. Also, his sister cleans up his hair, which he had taken scissors to, resulting in a very unflattering haircut. A weed-whacker could have done a better job.
Charlie closes the letter by swearing he will never do LSD again.
