Dear Hedda,
I had some more letters from you, the late ones from up to June 7 and some retarded, from May 12 and 17. I told you before there was some confusion because they didn't know yet my location but from now on I'll have regular mail and fast enough, about 3 weeks from the States. All your letters are coming in good shape, including the drawings and the beautiful amulets and all the nice words you have for me. I had the clipping from P.M. and miss Einst. sent me the double page with [[strikethrough]] my [[/strikethrough]] the bad selection of drawings. All that sounds now kind of silly to me and sad too. You know, the same old story, my beautiful past and my horrible present. Here is not to horrible anyway, haven't got a chance yet to work, all has to be organized yet and I sleep as much as possible. By the way you can tell if asked or anyway about where I am Doesn't make any difference and they all in theyr letters are trying to show me that long ago they knew that I'm in North Africa (By the way I won't mind to be there now; a lot to do.) I hope to be sent in China soon, not any sign yet it seems I'll stay here for quite a time
