Letter # 2

Dear Brother Christian,

Be so good and have a mass said for our parents, we are not able to do it.

Also a letter for Joseph Renner, Please send it to him.

None of the brothers and sisters can help the others because none of them have anything.

It is heart breaking when the children beg for bread and mother has none.

One who hasn’t seen such a catastrophe or lived it can imagine how terrible it is. So I’ll close my writing and greet and kiss you once more.

I love you,
Sister and sister-in-law Marianne Renner
