• I am forwarding my marriage certificate and six children. I have seven but one
died and was baptized on half a sheet of paper.

old. When do I get my money?

by the clergy.

• Please find for certain if my husband is dead, the man I am living with can’t
eat or do anything until he finds out.

this is satisfactory.
