In Macbeth, Macbeth writes a letter to his wife to tell her of the prophecies. Lady Macbeth immediately begins to plan how to help her husband take the crown.

In order to modernize the letter, one simply needs to use language typical to their own informal language.

Here is an example:

To my love,

Today, I came across a few fortune tellers and they told me that I was going to be king. This is really surprising to me. I never thought about being king, but since they mentioned it, it may not be a bad idea.

What was really funny about my fortune was that they called me a prince as well. When I was leaving, one of the guys came up and told me that I had been made a prince. This made me think that the fortune tellers may know what they are talking about.

What do you think? I think I would make a good king. I have served the country, supported the government, and am proud to be a citizen. I think that I do deserve to be king.

We will talk more when I get home.

Love you.
