My dear, cute Manfred,
I heard that a woman whose name I don’t know from Bar. #37 is leaving for Grammont. So I quickly made a little something for the taste buds with grape sugar and nuts (could have used you to chop) instead of cake. It is little but from the bottom of my heart, enjoy it. It is frightfully hot today, it has never been so hot. It is frightful at night, almost nobody is able to sleep because of the many bedbugs, by contrast, the fleas in B were quite acceptable, big and tiny ones.
