"My dear children,
We received your card of April 12. The package arrived also and if possible send us please coffee and tea. I am very happy that you send the money because I have been ill and am in need of it. I plead with you that you do not forget your old and sick mother. If I receive money for the 5th time I will send you a card. I hope you stay well. Greetings and kisses to all of you.
We received the second package via Portugal and are awaiting letters form you. Kisses and greetings to Alice and Mes."
