Dear beloved Amelia,
I write to tell you how much I miss you. Over here we receive small rations of food and there are even sometimes when we don't receive food at all. The food we eat consists of coffee, canned foods, hardtack, salt pork, and more. Even though I am doing well and eating okay, I miss your delicious cooking. The thing I miss the most about your cooking is your mouthwatering old fashioned apple pie. The recipe to this astonishing masterpiece is: 5 green apples (peeled and sliced), 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 cup molasses. Hopefully when I come back home, I will be able to taste your heavenly desert once again.
