Ton filleul qui t'aime. Je serre cordialement la main d'amitié à mon cousin Paul et je lui souhaite une bonne fête et une bonne santé à tous trois. Bien le bonjour à toute la famille pour moi ?

You see I wasn't born under a lucky star. Anyway patience and I will be able to finish these 430 days left and we will see each other in Paris. In conclusion I am sending you kisses from the bottom of my heart. Your Godson who loves you. Sincere compliments to my cousin Paul, I wish him a happy feast and a good health to the three of you. Say hello to the whole family for me ? Sincerely from Batna. Auguste Camus.]
