Dear revered Master, 1

Many thanks for your kind letter, 2 which I received after our safe arrival yesterday (Sunday) evening. More details will follow from me immediately with the postal payment forms. After our stay in Galtür we had many more pleasurable moments! I shall order bread tomorrow. 3 The money has just arrived; 4 I was not at home when it came, and I shall collect it tomorrow from the Post Office.

To you and your dear wife Lie-Lie, all cordial and intimate greetings from the two of us.
