Foster
English translation:translation below
Explanation:
NOTE: This letter is somewhat confusing in certain parts. If Foster is signing on the bottom, then how can the letter be addressed to Foster? As in \"Foster estou mandando......\" . Do you mean that Foster is sending 2 pictures or are you writing - Foster, I am sendin you 2 pictures? The second instance is \"....se nas for voce. Derek Foster Voce nas....\". First of all \"nas\" which means \"in these or those or the\" does not fit. I believe it\'s \"não\", meaning not or no. And ít\'s not clear if there should be a period after ....se nas for voce.\" or a comma, to read \"I can\'t think about anyone else but you, Derek Foster.\" or if the following phrase begins with \"Derek Foster, you did not.......\"
And the last phrase does not make sense again, it may be saying that Derek is no longer in Copacabana, but then, isnt\'the letter addressed to Derek?

Anyway, from the little that can be made of this letter the translation follows:



Foster, it is with all my care and love that I\'m sending you these 2 pictures. I can\'t think about anyone else but you. Derek Foster, you didn\'t write me and I expected your letter so very much! But that wont\' stop me from writing to the one I love and I shall never forget you because love doesn\'t fade away that easily. Derek is no longer in Copacabana.

Again I had a huge smile on my face. You're explanations were excellent. The letter written to me was porly written with bad hand writting skills used. It was written to Derek Foster from someone else, and yes the other word was indeed muita. Thank you for your superb excellence.
