My dear Ýrr There are so many thinks I must tell you. I think you won’t believe what happened after I sent the letter I told you about to Örvar. As a matter of fact he gave his blessing to the plant but his reply was so devoid of feeling that I couldn’t restrain myself from trying to change his attitude. I bought flowers for him and included a letter. A few days later he answered with such a beautiful and honest letter that I could hardly believe that the same man had written it. We have been exchanging letters almost daily since then. I am finally getting to know the man who has lived just across the hallway for many years. He has so much to tell and he is always ready to listen. I prefer this kind of communication. I think I will never learn to associate with people. In fact I suspect that that is one of the many things me and Örvar have in common.
