PROMPT: HOW WOULD YOU REVEAL A CHARACTER ONLY THROUGH A LETTER THEY WROTE?

What would you think if someone in a romantic situation asks the partner “What kind of books do you like?” and she answers “Checkbooks”.

How does conversation reveal a person’s intentions? In writing how do you indicate attitude via conversation only, without reference to things like body language? How would you reveal a character’s intention only through a letter they wrote?

The prompt is:

Write a letter and a response letter that tells the reader about your character.
