Letter(s) from Irina Razumova to Chris (USA)

Letter 1

I have a little got confused after your last letter! In the first I do not understand why I should send you a copy of my passport!??? But I shall send you this copy if you need! Simply I do not understand how it can help you? I still have not started to make out the visa and did not submit on consideration the passport to the American embassy in Moscow! I all over again should collect necessary money for that what to be assured that I can buy the ticket and pay for the visa! Only after that I shall begin registration of the visa! Partners of my uncle yet have not translated to him the money to a credit card, but my uncle has told to me that they will make it in some days! Then my uncle will give me the necessary sum! But I was confused with your phrase: " and then we will see for the money of your ticket! " dear, Chris, I do not understand what you wished to tell by that phrase!? You wish to send me of money for tickets!??? But my uncle can give me the necessary sum! Or you wish to pay for my tickets? In any case I am very happy to receive from you the letter! I look forward to your answer! Yours Irina

Hello dear Chris!!!

It is written by mum of Irina. I have specially gone to agency where to me have helped with English to write to you the letter. Unfortunately several days ago my daughter Irina has got in accident. she was brought down with the car. It is awful. The car which has brought down it has disappeared. Now she is in hospital in Moscow and I too has arrived here. I was in a shock when has learned about it. All the night long I am with my daughter in hospital. Irina was without consciousness in hospital about one yesterday. All time she repeats name Chris. Irina told to me about you much. she spoke, that you the remarkable person. I very much love the daughter and I trust her, that you remarkable man.

Yesterday Irina did pictures of a head and a body in hospital. But unfortunately Irina has some crises. she also has big bruises of a head. It is very dangerous to a life. Doctors have told to me, that she also can lose sight. I very much am afraid of it. Necessary operation is required to her. It do only in Moscow. Such operation costs 1300 $. It very much a greater sum. I have accumulation at a rate of 450 $. I also have asked the help of my friends. The general efforts we have found 500 more $. Now we collect money for all operation. I cannot explain my feelings which I test now through a computer. It is very sick on heart. Now I again shall go to hospital to be near to my daughter. I shall wait the answer from you. I wish as to tell that Irina asked to transfer you these words: Chris, all will be good, I love you!!!

All good.
