    The loss of the items that you have collected over many years is really painful. I hope you don't lose your joy in postal history. Especially letters and covers are unique and I hope this will help to find the thieves of your collections.

    Dear Hedy,
    I'm very sad to hear that. Does the stolen items also include your collection of disinfected mail? Do you have photographs of the important covers/letters?
    Yours sincerely,
    André
