My dear little nephew Costantino,

Today is St. John's. Your Swiss grandmother comes to you with best name-day wishes and in memory of your good dad who loved you so much. Our pains always keep us close though we live in silence, the desire to see you increases more with time.

I embrace you tenderly,

PM Mysteries

2018

Dear Costantino

How's the holiday? I'm really happy to have escaped the English test, here I'm having fun and I feel sorry for you. What did you do on Thursday? Was it bad weather? I envied you from ten to two until twenty to three, that's it. Please call Mary on Sunday morning because they won't be there in the evening. Did you manage to get out on Friday or Wednesday at the first hour? On the outward journey I have bought three detective stories and I hope to buy as many on the return.

Greetings Mario.
