Ninilchik, Alaska

Jan. 16, 1949

Dear Miss Fallows,

Thank you for your last letter with a snapshot of you.  You write that you were sick in bed.  I can not find time for such a pleasure, but I would like to have it for a few days.  I have [had] a bad head cold for days and days, and no way to cure it.

You see my pupils have very little of health standards, and colds are with them all the time.  Well, I have to have it too, working with them in school.

We have now an epidemic of mumps from Anchorage, and now the whole village is under the "spell" of mumps.

My Christmas was like any other Saturday or Sunday, nothing special, nothing unusual.

We had snow and snow for days.  There are some 8 ft. of snow in come parts of Alaska.  We had some there in past days.

Today, Sunday, we have sun and clear day, but rather windy.  Not cold at all.

Sincerely yours,

Roman Malach
