Stationery postcard Edifil 80N (serial number A6415954), with unreadable roller postmark but text on the back dated on June 18, 1938. Again, there is a mention to Poble Espanyol SIM’s headquarters to get packets through it.

Translation:

Dear family: I am all right, I hope you too.

Today I am writing with Josep to ask you to send tobacco as soon as you get it, and to send the packet through Poble Espanyol.

Bring us potatoes, onions, olive oil, olives and, if you have, honey. Also shoes for Josep, who didn’t remember to ask for a pair to his people. Bring us post cards.

We think we will be freed very soon.

As it is the evening and we are in a hurry, excuse us [for brevity].

Reply through a letter, as I love it. Nothing eles. Yours, Joan Jorba.
