Queridos todos:

Como me encargásteis no dejo de escribiros periódicamente para que sepáis que me encuentro muy bien, de modo que podéis estar tranquilos.

Mandarme 100 Ptas si os es posible para no quedarme sin dinero en caso de que nos trasladasen de aquí o no pudiésemos escribir.

Anduiza está aquí, Fernando en Segorbe.

Muchos recuerdos a todos los amigos, y para vosotros un abrazo muy fuerte de

Julio.

Dear all:

As you requested, I continue writting you periodically to let you know I am very well, so you don’t need to worry.

Send me 100 Ptas if you can to avoid running out of money if we are transferred anywhere else or if we could not write.

Anduiza is here, Fernando in Segorbe.

Lots of regards to all the friends, and a big hug for you, from

Julio.
