Re: Letter Translation Help

Many thanks Elba.

I have a few other letters I'd like to post for translation today or tomorrow as time permits. As I said they're all fairly short.

Have to say you folks here are wonderful giving your time and efforts helping others get in touch with their past. It's greatly appreciated.
