1. What are some of the things Lisa takes from the house she breaks into?
Lisa finds food, mainly soup in cans, and takes that. She also finds matches which are valuable to her now, and some medicines. Toothpaste, soap and a can opener are also among the items she puts in her sack.
2. Briefly tell what the man wrote to his son John in the letter Lisa found on the writing desk.
The man says that he's very weak and will likely die in a few days. He says that he hopes his son is safe and urges that he go be vaccinated. He also says there is no telephone service and that mail service will end soon. He says that he is sorry that they didn't get around to their camping trip in Canada and ends by saying that his son should "be brave."
