Dear little brother:
I have received your little letters you have sent me and
also the money for the coffee and for a dress. Alfredo gave
me $4 more, he said you saw them on the road. Marrita is
well, goes to school every day and the teacher says she
behaves well. Chepita says she had found out from Rafael
that he now ought to be in La Ceiba, Honduras. My father has
been sick with more 'miguillas' in the arm; I see my papa
more afflicted every day, I don't know why this is done to
me but it seems that the same will happen as occurred with
my little mother.
God grant that you have been well and that you will return
soon. Antonio has given aid to help you from your
difficulties and not be late in reuturning. Alfredo gave me
two pieces of cashmere for my father. I want to see if he
will have it made these days.
God has blessed you for your good sentiments. Manuel works
in the shoeshops of Pancho, God wants him to learn something
that will serve him later.
We all, all embrace you with love and affection,
