            Dearest Puci! You must certainly be better off in this wide world. It seems to be Wednesday, the 30th of March… [She starts to describe a person with her and that he has very bad days. They read a mass for him and someone else. They lay together and don’t know what is happening.]

            The good thing is that they had a bouquet of red roses to lay on top of the grave, or else I won’t go. I go alone. That is terrible that no person from the family goes, like an abandoned person, who is not consistent, he comes and goes.

            It seems like lately we have had a lot of heat! But there has also been a little rain. Or else it would be like a drought here and the inflation would become even worse. What are you guys up to? _____ must certainly have a vacation. [She talks about how they must write to each other often, always.]

Date: 6 May?

Language: German

Translation: “Dear Puci, I got your letter today on May 6th and I am answering right away. The package has not come or else I would have written you when you send it. “Nada” or “Vada” stayed with me for two days. She did not receive any vacation time or else she would have stayed longer, it is very hard because she so seldom comes. It is difficult for me to get away. It is hard to be alone, what should I do, “Loewe?” is already a big girl, who has her own big girls.

Dearest Puci, the “Vorli” is not serving. He gives us money but it is always too little, “Andov” looks so bad. He should be getting better and he keeps being prescribed [medicine], he is so weak like an old man. “Lani” trusts himself with another and he earns enough because he has a job and “Andov” is with his family in Serbia. They have four kids and poor _____ wants to return to Novi Sad, back to “Andov.” That is enough of that! If you have a picture of ______, give me one so that I have a friend and one of you also. It is such a long time…to see you’re gone. When you have no money and are so poor, you borrow once and then it can’t be any different.

I don’t inquire about Erno because he sends nothing, but you can still send me things! My life is very difficult and not material. Everything is good enough but what is not enough are the remaining things, the house ____should be sold. It will take everything away from me. Everything that we built there will be dead and others will come and take it and get nothing from it. I can’t ______ because it is very far and to whom would I sent it. It is hard for me to believe….and one can’t fundamentally separate the one from the other but that is the great worry of us all. I don’t want you to always write that I bear my losses. “One bears his losses” is not everything when one can live and eat but has so many worries. I am so skinny I look like the stalk of a weed, but that is like everyone.

Dearest Puci, don’t be angry with me that I must write you everything. You should also hear from ______. So until next time. I have no one, on whom I can rely…

Dearest Puci… [the end has no real closure]”
