Summer Basket

Probably Penza, Russian Soviet Socialist Republic, August 1969. Natasha, a younger sister of my paternal Grandmother Tatjana, wrote, "To Tanechka, my darling! Shura is convinced that I am not as thin as I look here, and he is probably right: I am average."

Thanks to my dear friend D for translating the text from Russian to English.

"I am not as think as I look here"

Think there's an adjective missing there.
