Get ready for some serious '80s nostalgia.

In June 1984, a young Prince fan named Annalisa Masters wrote Prince a letter just after his sixth album Purple Rain came out.

It's unclear what exactly Masters wrote, but whatever it was touched Prince so deeply that he responded with a very sweet letter. Until recently it was on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Minneapolis, according to Letters of Note, who originally posted it online.

The letter reads:

Dearest Annalisa,

It is so nice of 2 write me. I don't always have time 2 reply but your letters surely brighten my day.

You're so sweet. I'm glad you're my friend. If u dig the video, wait until u see the movie. I'm very proud of it. I hope u are 2.

Congratulations on making thru jr. high. I'm sure u did better than I. I wasn't much on school. I was 2 busy listening 2 the grass grow.

Thank u again 4 writing me.

Until I hear from u,

Prince

He seems totally down to earth -- a side effect of listening to grass grow, maybe.
