Summary of the letter

Raizel notes her and everybody else's frustration at receiving so few letters from Sala. The situation is made worse because they have to write all of their subsiquent letters in German. You can feel her keeping a lid on it in this letter. The terror rising, and then she puts it back. A letter where she allays Sala's fears.
