Dear Elena,

Thank You very much for Your letter and beautiful postcards. They enjoyed me and I am glad, that we may write one to another.

In this month (January) you are your birthday and of cause I wish You many happy returns of the day, good luck and (god) good health. With this letter I send You a little keepsake It is a little wooden doll in our national dress and Polish chocolate to taste.

About two month ago I have receive from my friend-girl a little white mouse. Her name is “Gryzunia”. (that means “to bite” or “to gnaw”) She is very funny. When she is anger she hits with her tail on floor and when she is excited than her tail stays straight or whole length. She gnaw all on her way. You asme when is my birthday. I was born on January 4, that is, on the same month as you. I was in all those places which are on the postcards that you got from me.

On the end of my letter I will tell you about the death of Your President Mr. Kennedy. The people of Poland was very sad and desperate. In Warsaw, in our cathedral church there was a mass for his soul. There were a great crowds before the church, because there was no place within. It is a damage that such a great man is dead

That’s all
Yours very truly
Ania

PS. Kind regards to Your parents and sister.
