A rough translation of the letter reads:

“October 3rd 1943

Dear Godfather!

Today on a Sunday I have to write to you right away. Unfortunately these lines are coming from the field hospital. Fate caught up with me just like many of my comrades. I fell ill with malaria tropica, the insidious fever sickness of the tropics. Today it is over again, but on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd Sept the fever didn’t go below 40°C. The peak was on the evening of the 23rd with 41.6°C. You can guess how one feels then. I believe that we're getting one in the eye in our future lives. Here in Greece, things are pretty lively. Back then the story with the Italian and now there are gangs appearing again on a larger scale. How's your dear wife in munich? I wish you healthy days. When you're sick, you'll learn to appreciate health.”
