I was very happy to get your letter. Please excuse my not writing right away but I have been trying to find a picture of myself. No success. I will send one in my next letter. Would you send me one of you?
I am 5” 4” tall. Grey blue eyes, dark blonde hair etc. What do you look like?
You say that you are German. Did you ever live in Germany? If you did, what was it like over there?
Do you have very many pen pals? I have one in Japan, one in Indonesia, and 5 in the U.S. including you. Quite a few, huh? Tonight I am going to get up the nerve to write to all at once. That will be some trick, huh?
Well tell me about yourself. Please write soon.
Your Pen Pal,
