Dear Mrs. Rosendahl - Hurrah - such wonderful gift parcels are raffled off! Lucky me, I selected your lovely package. We are at Warsaw, and day and night there are concerts - Always [illegible]! You've probably already read in the newspapers how the situation here is otherwise.
Again, many thanks and regards,
Berthold Brand
