My Dear Friend,
No doubt this is the last chance to write to you.
I could learn nothing about the children. Could do nothing for them—impossible to
communicate.
If it is God’s will that we never see each other again, know that you have been one of the greatest
lights of my life.
My love to you and Vera,
Nadia B.
[P.S.] How I thought of you on the 18th! What a sad birthday you must have had, so far away.

Mon Cher Ami,
La dernière opportunité sans doute de vous écrire.
Je n’ai rien pus[sic] savoir des enfants. Rien faire pour eux—impossible de communiquer.
Si Dieu veut que nous ne nous voyions plus, sachez que vous avez été une des grandes lumières
de ma vie.
Je vous embrasse, Vera et vous
Nadia B
Comme j’ai pensé à vous le 18 ! Quelle triste fête, si loin, que vous avez eue.
