Estimada Agus,

Ahir vaig rebre la carta teva 24-8. Ja sabia que’l teu St. era aquest mes, però no sabia el dia exacte. Va el regal: fa dies vaig enviarte unes postals que demanava una boina i unes espardenyes. Enviame-las, las necesito urgenment. Vaig rebre el paquet el dilluns amb un troç de cansalada, 1/2 pa, avellanes, 2 venes, axigenada, cotó, fil i agulles. Fa una semana vaig rebre 1 paquetilla, dilluns 4 paquetilles, un paquet anglès i 6 llibre Payà, i ahir una paquetilla per correu. He rebut el toldo. Enviam junt amb la boina sacarina i per correu, precisament sense demora. Molts petots per a tots,

Pitus

Dear Agus,

Yesterday I receive your letter fom August 24. I already knew your name day was in this month, but I didn’t know which day. Here is my gift: some days ago I sent you some post cards asking for a beret and a pair of shoes. Send this to me, I urgently need it. On Monday I received the packet with a peace of bacon, half bread, hazelnuts, 2 veins, perodixe, cotton, sweewing needle and thread. A week ago I received one tobacco packet, on Monday four packets, an English tobacco packet and six packs of cigarette paper. I’ve received the awning. Send sacarine with the beret through the mail, with no delay. Lots of kisses for all,

Pitus
