Default Question about the mail at MacDougall

Is the mail at MacDougall slow as it were several years ago? I have recently sent my first letter to new pen pal there, it was exactly one month ago. I am in Eastern Europe so i guess that my letter (if he decites to write, of course) will come to me much slower than if i lived in USA. But my question was, how many "extra days" approximately i should wait? I've heard that years ago a letter TO and From this prison could take two weeks somebody there to receive it and another two weeks the sender to get an answer.

Hi there and welcome to PTO. I dont know about this particular prison but I do know about writing from Europe. Letters can be very slow sometimes 2 or 3 weeks for a letter from the USA to Europe taking into account mail rooms.
I would give it sometime and I am sure he will reply.
If you want to speed things up you could see if he has jpay, corrlinks or GTL messaging.It works like email and some states allow 2 way messaging.
Or look at jmail.cc you type your letter on their site and they post the letter foryou in the USA you can send photos and PDF documents as well.
