USMC-GNN translation & commentary:

"Abraham Rivera, Neptune. ¶ Dear Sir: ¶ I hope that when this reaches your hands I will know your good health, we have (?) the good thanks of God. Abraham I want to know if you have had them also. Tell my little mother that if I bring the loads that were made up, if I don't bring them now I will bring them when we come back. ¶ I pray God for you, we await you every day, we want to see you, as always dedicated to your happiness receive our regards, ¶ /s/ María Luisa Fuerta Rivera. ¶ [On rear:] ¶ For Adolfo Castillo, books, ¶ First book - 2nd book ¶ seed of tobacco of Dr. F.

A better English translation:

"July 26, 1927 ¶ El Neptune ¶ Don Abraham Rivera ¶ Dear Sir: I hope that when this reaches your hands you will be enjoying all good happiness. Thanks to God we are doing well. Don Abraham, I would like to know if you are coming to see us. My mother also asks if you brought her the goods she asked you to bring. She says that if you did not this time, please bring them the next time you come here. We pray God for you. Every day we desire to see you and as always we wish you happiness. Receive our regards, ¶ Your servant, ¶ M. Luisa Fuerta Rivera ¶ [On rear:] Reading primers - 1st book - 2nd book – Caton ¶ Tobacco seeds. By D. I. Cruz or A.

Summary & Notes:

    Source: RG127/43A/29.  For the cache of captured documents of which this letter was a part, see the TOP 100 PAGE 11.  This was no. 19 on the Marines' list, with the rear of letter containing another message, written on the stationary of the shuttered Eden Mining Company.

    Maria Luisa Rivera was still alive in summer 2014, but unfortunately too frail and not in a mental state conducive for a formal interview.
