"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.

Your mother-sister.

We received the second package via Portugal and are awaiting letters form you. Kisses and greetings to Alice and Mes."
