Letter from Aahil

Dear Paul Revere,

I would like to say that your painting on Boston Massacre was very beautiful. I was there when the fight was going on, it was so depressing to see that five people were killed, I felt really bad for them. It was a very tough battle. But I also got to know that the first person who got killed during the battle was Crispus Attucks. While the British tried to kill a lot of people, some of them also escaped the battle alive, which was the only thing I was happy about. I hope that you like my report.
