Dear brother, I can tell you that we are well and we wish you the same good health and happiness. Now my dear brother I can tell you that I received your letter and a check for 25 dollars and 1 dollar on 13 of April. I got the money and then I wrote to you but my dear brother don�t wait for my letter write sooner and more, for your one letter I write two.� I received a letter from Mate two days ago and he wrote to me that he received your letter. Now my dear brother you ask to write to you what is new, there is nothing new that is important, corn and potatoes this year is good and grain is weak. Adam�s wife died and Marija is very sick. Now receive a greeting from your mother and all of us, both sisters and their families. Bye your brother Josip
