La lettre de Hilja envoyée de Viipuri

Viipuri on 2nd September 1939

Dear Tyyne!

Kind regards to you from our dear old Viipuri! Now that I am back after my long absence, I realize how much I have missed the place. This used to be my home, after all! Memories from my youth and childhood kept coming to mind when I visited familiar places. It is so beautiful here, just as it always has been. Tyyne my friend, I will now tell you what I saw during my walk in the town.
