Hilja's letter from Viipuri

A fine new school has been built at the end of the Koulukenttä Field. I am sure you remember the steep rocks where we sometimes played hide and seek with the boys! Do you remember the accident one winter when we went skiing and you fell over the cliff into the snow? All I could see of you were one stick and a glimpse of your skis. Luckily the boys managed to pull you out of the thick snow. You were completely covered in snow. I'm so glad you were not hurt!
