Dear Salu! I can report to you that just yesterday I got out of Dulag and I got work right away at the firm Skopek. Dear Salu, I had enough good luck to be able to stay at home, you can imagine that I was going to go away to Parzeiniche together with Kalli, but I got out of it. I also spoke with your sister in Dulag because she got a summons to appear in Dulag, but she was freed.
