My dear son Ark
We have received your postcard that you sent on November 23th for which we thank you fondly. Dearest son, in the card that we wrote to you, we told you that we were also sending a letter. Did you receive it?Concerning your clothes, I am pleased that you are ordering from the tailor the same clothes that you have left at home and that I am wearing. When I put on your suit, mother tells me not to dirty it but it already torn.Concerning Rajzy, we have received, not a long time ago,some news about her. She is in some village with a farmer but does not intend spending the winter there because it so very cold. Since these news we haven't received any information so we don't know where she is.You wrote that is very cold where you are. Do you have warm clothes or a good sheepskin coat?After the end of your contract will you be able to have some rest? You reproached to us that we don't write often enough but it is not true. We send news three times per week but you don't receive all the letters. I end my letter with my fond regards to you and also to your compagnons.
Your parents
