TRANSLATION OF FRENCH LETTER DATED 17th APRIL 1951

 

Dearest Bill,

 

I got your letters dated from the 8 and 12 of April when I came back from a trip on the Riviera where Lolette and I spent ten days.

 

Iím happy to know you received every parcel we sent to you. Weíll keep on sending you the same ones, and I hope youíll regularly get them. We think to fill them like this :

 

-       1kilo of sugar, 2 tins of sardines, some p‚tť, and bacon.

Does it fit you?Let me know if you want to change the contents.

 

The weather in France is nice and chilly these days. We had roughly the same weather on the Riviera than in Paris. Iíve never seen the Alps so white, and so little snow than this year.

 

Iím writing you in a hurry because I came back last night and Iím very busy working. Iíll send you a longer letter soon.

 

My best regards to you both,

 

Yours
