Can anyone help me know what to write for a letter from Gene to Finny?

I am writing a letter for class. It can be from Gene to Finny or Finny to Gene. I'd like to write it as Gene to Finny, but I'm not sure what to write.

I would suggest that Gene seems to live with a serious guilt. A letter seems to be the perfect opportunity to tell all. Gene tried to tell the truth about the incident in the tree once to Finny and Finny really wouldn't hear any of it.

Consider using the letter to be as forthcoming as possible about what Gene has done. As is true to Gene's character, he would also likely compliment Finny as he has admired in the past so many aspects of Finny's character.

Let Finny know how much you care about him and how just being a teenage boy has kept you from doing the right thing. Let him know your pride may have gotten in the way.
