Estimada Agus,

No se si vaig escriuret dient que vaig rebre una postal de la Tresina, el cas és doncs que diu que contesti, i no se l’adressa que té.

Vaig escriure’t perquè m’enviessiu una camisa forta, uns pantalons o un mono, una cantimplora, uns trossos de corretja cuiro d’uns 10 a 25 mm ample per unes sandàlies, etc.

Aquí fa molta calor però estic bé. Fes molts petons a tots, i a tu per descomptat,

Pep

Dear Agus,

I don’t remember if I wrote you saying I got a post card from Tresina. She wants me to reply, but I don’t know her address.

I wrote you asking for a shirt with strong clothing, a pair of trousers, a coverall, a canteen, some pieces of strap of a width of 10 to 25mm for the sandals, etc.

It is very hot here, but I am fine. Lots of kisses for all and for you, of course,

Pep
