Letter to Daniel Tutka, dated 24 May 2017

Dear Daniel
What, if I might ask, is you "personal reasons"? Tell me in a letter if you want it private. Hope your family's well.
As you can see on pg. 2 of this, I received what you got me. Thank you! =) Some of it was denied, will be destroyed, as I can't pay to mail it out. =( That's why I was so specific in what I want + can have - I hate to see you waste your, and hate to see prison staff keeping anything of value, like the SS keeping concentration camp prisoners' hair, clothes, gold teeth.
I owe you my sanity. The T.V. blocks the chaos in here!
The only other things I kinda need is:
one - #8169 Nail clippers .95$ - .95
six(max) #8039 5-pack post-paid envelopes 3.15 -18.90
one #8119 White narrow-lined paper 2.26
ordered from www.JLMarcusWisconsin.com
(these vitamins I can have #4674 Natrol Multivitamins 18.64
or #8331 My Fav Multiple 19.99

The one thing I desperately want is credit put on my account with prisoninmates.com/NateLindell303724 , which you can do through prisoninmates.com/product/8/Fund-an-Inmate%27s-Balance-on-Account -- 100$ will let me post my book on there, more will let me make my page "featured", get more eyes on it. (I can't post it on my blog, here)
Until I find a typist, at least it will be safe, viewable by publishers, literary agents, etc. - no risk of guards destroying it, as they did when I was in W.C.I. in 2013 (sued about it, lost, screwed by court =( )
Write more later, on good paper.
Thank you very much for saving me. Truth
Sincerely
Nate.

Dear Nathaniel

Thank you for your letter which I have receive today.

I am glad to hear that at least you have received some of the staff that I have orderd for you.
I assume you havent got a TV ? Is that correct? Ate you not able to have one or the model was not appropriate?
I see no earplugs which I have sent too?arent you allowe to have one?

As far as answering your question about my "personal reason"the answer is , I believe, rather simple-I have no hidden motive I need no appreciation nor aplaus. I just believe that in other circumstances you would be a different man in a different place mostlikelt had a familly but for some reason it did not happend.Without a question you do deserve a humanity and human acts of help without- thous who help you- asking for reward.
How I found you is also simple task , while moving - has been living with my wife and 2 kids in a small flat for some years- I have looked throug all my pictures and memorables from US that I keep in my wooden box and there was this newspaper article about you.
So I have tiped your name in google and that is how I found you. Yes I have been thinking meantime and was wandering what if you would have had a better start a better childhood ( please do not take me wrong for I do not want to efend you) while having a close familly relation ...
Nathaniel I hope my contact with you May bring to your everyday life some positive attitude to stay firm and keep the faith.

Be well and take care Nathaniel.

Ps. 1.Make me a full list of what you are able to recive and will not be taken away from you
2.If I transfer some money to your account will this not be confiscated by
Authorities?

Talk tou you next time. Daniel.

Dear Nathan

How are you?
Are you doing well?I trust you are fine and the people around you treat you good.

Hear in my Country all is rather positive although your President did not keep His promise and we still need to aply for visa while planing to go to USA.
In our familly the Harvest is over only corn still stands proudly on the field waiting to be cut , Autumn is just around the corner, way too fast.We had plans for Vacation but only few had been fulfilled.My Doughter is now in 5th class and Son started 3rd. They both are into sports still beeing sucsefull at school:)
It makes me happy to look at them every day .I wish they would find their own way one day. That is my goal as a father but still I know that live is beeing ironic sometime and brings all we do not expect so I am trying not to plan too much or too far.
What woud you recomend ?

Take care Nathaniel.
Looking forward to hear from you.

Dear Nathaniel

Ca va ?
It has been already a few months we have been in touch for last time
Although I was to replay to your email very next day it did not worked out for there was always something else disturbing me.
I wanted to do so for a very particular reason, you have mentioned in your last letter -among many wise things - that I should keep my kids away from social medias which I agree with you, we still do not use facebook and and other tweets or shits...but wat was more incredible to me and hit me strongly is that you sugested me exposing my kids to,few authors of books and just the very day before I received your email I have bought spontaniously while traveling by car to visit my client an audiobook at the gas station and it was a Mark Twain The Prince and the Pauper.
Incredible isnt it?
So may be there is some strong inmaterial “mind flow” inbeetwen humanbeeings that helps them comunicate without boundries.I wish I knew this.

Anyway how is your strugle with court is there any chance you can improve the system?Will you change anything?I keep my fingers cross. It should be a prison duty not only to punish but also to give a chance ... and hope or Am I wrong?

It is a winter now in Poland quite severe lots of snow and low temperatures
And we are going on Saturday on short winter holidays to Switzerland a city called Zermatt it is regarded as a farytail place - no cars allowed only electric vehicles no modern architecture etc.
Just wondering how will it be
I will let you know in next email how was it.

Take care by now and we stay in touch
Be strong and stay with hope
Kind Regards Daniel.
