Respect to all ! We are very proud about our american children, but we hope that they will continue in respecting us as parents because we too will be at the row soon.
I am very sorry that the [Vaty ?] was ill but it is my fault, I had to give her good shoes or galoches. Everyone must become ill with this used shoes in the rain, about the bad weather of this week I can tell you, I always hava asked a passing car to take us a part of the road and once even a manager with a car did bring us home and so we did stand this crisis in good health. But I have to be very carefull because she now is very sensitive.
What about Mrs Rahen? Is she away already. We drive tomorrow, Saturday, to Paul.
The shoulder of this cloths I already have
