Hi my dear Roger!
Happy birthday to you!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!
Happy birthday dear Roger!!!
Happy birthday to you!!!
My wishes for you... I wish all your dreams to come true.
I wish all misfortunes to forget road to your home.
I wish for you only the "Enjoyment", only "Pleasure", only "the Love".
Today is a fine day. Already in the morning I knew that I today I will get an opportunity to write to you. And all the rest become unimportant for me. Today I really haven't opportunity to write much.
Please forgive me. But I have enough time to tell to you that I thought of you and waited when I will get opportunity to write you.
And I have time to tell the main thing. I do not know why, but today I have woken up earlier than usually. I could not fall asleep again.
I simply sat near window and looked at the sky. Suddenly, a small birdie appeared on my window. It was very beautiful birdie. This birdie looked at me, and started to twitter. It was so unusually and beautifully. It was a beautiful song. I looked at this small birdie and thought, that you Roger now somewhere far away; maybe you sleep and see me in your sleep-dream. And I so wanted you to see this small birdie and to hear her delightful song. And I have whispered: "Fly off, my little birdie, fly to my friend Roger, and tell to him that one girl, that is so far away, thinks of him and sends to him this song. And at this moment the birdie has flinched and flew away as if this birdie has heard my words!
And I have thought, if today you Roger will see a small birdie singing beautiful song, - be sure that it is my birdie I sent to you!
Forgive me, but I have to go. I want to send you my kiss if you do not mind.
Your Natalya.

P.S. I have a surprise for you. I hope you like my pictures?
I take these pictures specially for you.

Letter 2

Hi, my Roger.
I even do not know what to tell first. I simply hope that you will be happy!
The most important, finest news - I did it! I got the visa! I am very happy!!!!
I as well have found out that I will get vacation November, 16.
I have been to the company that reserves airway tickets. I asked them how I can reach Panama City (ECP) and how much it costs. They have offered to me the roundtrip ticket that costs $1529 USD. I asked them to find cheapest ticket, because this price is expensive for me. They have answered that they have a cheaper roundtrip ticket and the beginning of the flight November, 20.
It costs $1197 USD. It was the best variant for me. I asked them to reserve a ticket.
But they refused, because they can't reserve the ticket without advance payment.

I must pay full cost. I have asked if I can pay a part of money now, and the other part later. They have told that it is possible, but I will be limited by term.
And if I will not pay the full cost of the ticket within of this term, I will lose already nested money. I have agreed because it is the only chance for me, because I must give to anti-emigration committee a data about my payment. By this moment I had only the concrete sum of money which I had after all my expenses.
I paid $ 700 USD. But it was not enough for them. In a panic, all what Kristina and I could do - we pawned our earrings and gold rings and I got $ 113 USD.
That is all I could do. The number of the flight on which I will get the ticket is 1471 Air France. The time of departure from Moscow is 11:30am.
I will change a plan in Paris, number of the flight 688 Air France.
Then I will change a plan in Atlanta, number of the flight 4363 Delta Airlines.
After this I will fly to Panama City, to you. The time of arrival in Panama City is 8:00pm.
I know that probably I simply must tell that I can't come to you because I haven't the remaining sum. I know that I promised to do all by self, and I was sure that I can. I did not want to ask you. But after I did everything I did, I cannot simply tell that I will not come to you. I have passed through so many difficulties, and I have overcome the most difficult. But all the same I have disgusting feeling that I could not fulfill the promise. I am always ready to do all what is possible,- to fulfill my promises, but at the same time I understand that any person could get in such a situation.
To get the visa I have spent much more money than I expected. But people were ready to help me only if I will pay them. I paid more than 500 dollars to get all documents, I paid in municipal committee, in the ministry. Even officers in army garrison have compelled me to pay for their help. I did not expect all this, but up to the last moment I was sure that I still can make everything. I expected that I can get a vacation payment. We get a vacation payment after ending of a vacation.
I asked to give me this money now because I need this money urgently. But, at the last moment I have got the answer that I can get this money urgently only in case of serious illness or for example in case of death of the relative.
I feel so guilty. I was sure that nothing can prevent our meeting.
But I must pay remaining sum. It is $ 384 USD. And I must pay money before November, 12, evening. Otherwise I will lose my nested money and our jewelry will be sold out simply in vain. I know that I should not ask you, and I am very ashamed to do it. I remember you said that you had bad experience of dialogue with other lady. I know it and for me twice difficult to address to you. But also comprehension of my position convinces me, that any person could get in similar situation. I want to meet you and I say sincerely that I need your help. I understand that I put you in inconvenient position. But I am simple person, I am the simple woman. I am not the wizard.
I only ask you do not compare me to bad people and to think of me bad things.
Any person could get in a similar situation. And maybe I really simply had to tell you that I can't meet with you because I could not provide my travel completely. But I cannot simply refuse our meeting because then all my diligence, forces, nerves, means will be spent in vain. I understand that for you it is too big sum to lend me. You are not obliged to help me. And 500 dollars which I have spent to get the visa, and 813 $ that I have given for the ticket are huge money for me. But I want you to know that I have given everything not for the sake of myself, but for the sake of us, for the sake of you and me. And I was happy all this time. If you want to meet me, to help me to make our meeting, please, send money to the help before November, 12.
I want you to be confident in my sincerity, - that is why I send you the Scanner of my visa. At least you will see that I am completely honest.
I address to you only because I need it right now, because the anti- emigration committee waits for me with all documents and I am obliged to come to committee according to appointed term.
I do not know if you can to help me. But I have no other exit. I need you.
If you can help me I will tell you what I have found out. Kristina said that you can help me with the help of remittance system "Western Union".
So I have addressed to the nearest office ''Western Union''. I have been told that this system works always and reliably. And in the Western Union the maximal term of transfer of money - some minutes! Do you heard about the this system? You can send your help to any Western Union in Russia.
All you need from me is country and my full name. My country is Russia.
My full name is NATALYA (my name) KIRGIZOVA (my surname).
The nearest city where I can receive your help it Rostov on Don.
In Western Union I have been told, that to get the money, I must tell to employee your full name, your full address, exact sent sum and the confidential number - Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). You will get this number in your Western Union if you will send your help. Only with presence of all this information I can get your help.
I do not know what answer I will get from you. I very much am afraid that you will not help me. But I want to tell, that I really need you, and I simply can't endure the thought that I did almost everything, but I will not meet you. I understand that it is big money. I have given all my forces, but together we are stronger. I really ask you to help me. I will give you back all your money at the earliest opportunity.
I have written you honestly and sincerely. Are you with me?
Your Natalya.
