Summary:
He talks about how much he enjoys his exercise period in the yard, even when it is cold. That day he read Manny's letter during his yard period, and was thrilled by it. He explains that he sends Ethel two letters a week and why. He admits he has not been writing recently, but that Manny's letter has inspired him. He has been "very relaxed" recently. He thanks Manny and goes into a consideration of their relationship and his merits. He responds to the pressure he and Ethel have been receiving to "'confess' to save" themselves, explaining what he believes to be the motivation behind it. He writes of the agony he feels for his wife and because he has to rely on the "higher policy of our government" to receive justice. He turns to the effect this has had on his sons next. He reminisces about the Saturdays he used to have with his family.
