Volgud germà /mara/ i àvia: Per últim, veien que vosaltres no em voleu escriure, os escric cuatra ratllas per dirvos que estic bo i que ahi varex tení carta de la Maria, la meva cosina, que em dia la diricció del Peret. Pensen a escriruem i espliqueume com tic les terrurs i les anyadas.

Res més, una abrasada per tots vosaltres del vostre,

Joan Jorba R.

Dear brother, mother and grandmother: finally, as I see you don’t want to write to me, I send you a few letters to let you know I am well and that yesterday I got a letter from Maria, my cousin, telling me Peret’s address. Remember to write to me and let me know how my lands and harvests are.

Nothing more to tell, a hug to you all from yours,

Joan Jorba R.
