  Box in the Mail.
You should be receiving a box via U.S. Mail from me. The inmate who had been helping these past months by going to commissary and cleaning my cube on occasion went home about two weeks ago. When he left he took my name and number and said he was going to send me a package.

Well he sent one and it is probably the same box that you received unless they put his box inside a larger box.

I ended up spending $12.14 to send the box to you. They make us purchase the basic insurance, and the receipt says the box weighed 16 lbs. Is that the right price? Did they put the box inside another box?

Why did I send you the box? Well while the box was properly addressed to me, Mark forgot to put his name and return address on the box. According to the policy, without a return address they cannot even open the box. So while Mark said he would be sure to give me his address, I assume you will find it in the box I just sent you.

The fun part of this was I do not know what he sent. He simply told me he knew what I liked and would send me a package. While he was here he did not receive any outside funds and I am not exactly sure what his living arrangements are now. So besides the joy of receiving a package of edibles, I am curious as to what items he chose to send.

Since I know he is not a rich man, I felt the only noble thing to do was to send the box to you. You can open it. See if you find his address and/or other correspondence. If you do, would you send that information to me in a letter. If you can, simply use his return address on the envelope (instead of your home address) and drop it in the mail.

Mark is not on parole or any other type of post-release supervision, so he can send mail and packages to me without getting into trouble. Not like the letters I was trying to send to my friend Dave while still in Club Fed.

As for the package I would appreciate you sending back to me either by US Mail or UPS. Remember if you send it via UPS be sure to use the street address instead of the PO Box. Use your name and address as the return address on the box.

If you happen to have a couple extra cans of anchovies around that you might feel inclined to toss in the box I would really be in hog heaven.

Be sure you print your full first and last name on the package. I will gladly reimburse you for the cost of sending the package ($10 check sent separately).

I did receive the monthly letter from Mom today. The letter is legible but while the letter is four handwritten pages, most of the sentences are incoherent. Damn.
