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.
