Scope and content
Leon Skadowsky is a brother of Anna and Olga. The family comprised 11 children. Anna is delighted to have received Olga's letter dated 24 December 1918. The previous letter received from Olga had been written in November 1917. Letters sent by Anna to Olga had been returned by the English post and Anna had ceased to write. Leon, Olga's son, is fine. He had been working as a chemist near Paris at Aubervillier Fort where his legs were twice severely burned by acid and he was sent to the Mediterranean for several weeks to recover. Leon Skadowsky has seen Leon in Paris and he is well. Leon no longer works as a chemist but as an interpreter thanks to his knowledge of languages. Leon Skadowsky is well and is a teacher at the air-firing school in the Gironde but is seeking a job for when he is demobilised. The Brodskys have given financial aid to both of the Leons. Anna is distressed to learn of the cruel death of her sister Marie. Anna adds in a postscript that Adolph has not changed nor has their life, but Anna herself has aged. In French.
