Summary of Letter to God

When the postman of the post office finds Lencho’s letter addressing God, he laughs about his blind faith in God. He also showed the letter to the postmaster who first found it funny too but later he was motivated to help the farmer.


The postmaster asked the other employees of the post office to help the poor farmer with money. He even contributed a part of his salary to help Lencho, he was able to collect only 70 pesos. 


Finding the money in the envelope Lencho was not at all amazed by it, rather he got angry thinking why God didn’t send more money as he requested. He again wrote a letter to God and asked not to send the rest of the money through a letter. He doubted that the employees of the post office had stolen the rest of the money.
