Dear Princess Celestia,
Many strange things are happening here in Ponyville. A magical journal has shown up on my desk and from what I can tell, people are able to talk to each other across great distances. Other than having magical properties, I haven’t been able to see anything otherwise unusual about it. I write here in hopes that you have one too, or maybe any other pony who might get this message to you.
I haven’t seen Spike or any of my other Ponyville friends today, but other than that, everything seems to be normal. I’m hopeful they’ll show up sooner or later. One thing I have learned is that true friendship can never keep close ponies apart! Still, I hope everything and everypony in Canterlot is okay and I look forward to your next letter.
Your faithful student,
