My dear wife!
I’ve received your letter and the 15 Marks from my sister Loli, for which many thanks, and I thank my sister and my brother-in-law from the bottom of my heart, hopefully I can […] one day express my thanks to Oscar and Loli personally.
My dearly beloved and unforgettable wife! For the second time I have to send you my most heartfelt and warmest greetings to you on your birthday from far away and by letter, please take them for the moment as if I were doing it in person and giving you a very long birthday kiss from the bottom of my heart and with teary eyes.
My dearest Rosa! Imagine how I feel, having to congratulate you on your birthday like this. But dear Rosa! I’ll keep standing my ground and holding my head high because I am, thank God, still healthy, and I wish and hope the same for my children, for my and your mother, and of course for you, too, my dear birthday girl.
My dear wife! Tell me the latest news from Vienna and from my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law Anna & Ilusch. Please greet them all affectionately from me, also the Natz family, Pirek and Rakodri. My dear wife! About the woollen items – pullover, socks, gloves and scarf – I’ll let you know if you can send them.
Now, I send you lots of love and kisses, my dearest, my two sons Stefi and Dolfi, and lots of extra greetings to my dear old mother and nanny, an extra dear birthday wish for my brother Sep [?]. Affectionate greetings to my dear brother-in-law and sister Loli.
