They smelled like magic

I remember that one contained a beautiful patchwork quilt, which I have kept to this day.

Other parcels contained Kellogg’s cornflakes. We had never seen cornflakes here. I remember to this day – they smelled like magic!

I thought all Americans must be millionaires after receiving these parcels.
