My darling sweet dear Papa!!!
I want to see you so much. I have just finished my arithmetic lesson, I think I did quite well. We are going to nurses’ school. I am very glad. Today it is rainy and very damp. I am in Tatiana’s room, Tatiana and Olga are here. When you see Boba, tell him that my hands are itching.
I’m trying very hard to breed worms, but Olga says I stink, which isn’t true. When you come I am going to bathe in your bath. I hope you haven’t forgotten the story I told you during our walk.
I am sitting picking my nose with my left hand. Olga wanted to biff me one, but I escaped her swinish hand. When you come I will meet you at the station. Be happy and healthy.
A big squeeze to your hand and face. Thinking of you. Love you always, everywhere.
