Meanwhile, here's what the letters say. First one:
You, my very dear, sweet Leny!
Your very dear Daddy sends to you and our Rolf-Rainer the dearest and most heartfelt greetings for Pentecost and very dear, ardent kisses! Yes, my darling, how will you spend Pentecost? Hopefully well! Around here, one cannot even tell that it is Pentecost. Not even the mail has arrived; it makes me puke. Hopefully, you have received all of my mail and the parcels. I have bought something for you again: girdles from rubber, like summer girdles; around here, I can also get you the large rubber girdles and stockings as well. It's just that everything is so expensive and hopefully, everything will arrive. I wonder when we will get mail around here again. I wonder how you and our sweet boy are? Enclosed, I am sending you two allowance stamps; we were given those here. If you can, do send me a few cigarettes; I am always very short for those around here. It's best if you keep sending them to me as small parcels.
Now, very dear, ardent kisses from your very dear Daddy!
Very dear, ardent kisses to Rolf-Rainer!"
