Dear Aunt:

I received two packages. I ask you to write more often. It makes me feel good, because I am very nervous [Shep believes he may have written this and the following sentence to encourage sympathy and get more packages]. I haven't heard from home since the beginning of the war. I look forward to a quick answer from you and, if possible, a package with winter clothes.

My regards to Mrs. Polmer.
