3/19/2012 3:25 PM Dear aunt and uncle!
Very sorry for so long,
even unforgivable
silence,
Received, from dear you, 10 rubles,
we first of all put them aside,
decided wait from your accompanying
letter, where hoped
find the explanation for purpose of the money.
But to our huge disappointment
The letter that we waited so long
we did not received.
Yesterday visited father in k. Dontse,
where with tons of pleasure


Дорогие тётя и дядя!
Очень извиняюсь, за столь долгое,
даже непростительное
молчание.
Получив, от вас дорогих, 10 рублей,
мы сперва отложили их в сторону
решили ожидать от вас сопроводительного
письма, где надеялись
найти объяснения на значение денег.
Но к величайшему нашему сожалению
мы письма так долго дожидаемого
нами не получили.
Вчера был у отця в к. Донце,
где с большим удовольствием.
