Question A problem with mail in Stateville Prison

Hi everyone,
I have a friend in Stateville.
We experience a problem with mail last year - more than half of his letters are "lost".
Recently I read a blog written by one guy from Stateville and he wrote: "For periods of time I had to write duplicates because my letters were disappearing."
Does anyone else experience the same problem?
Could someone suggest us what to do?

Thank you.

May God Bless you and your loved ones.

Nat

I just spoke with a counselor there who said there are over 4,000 inmates there and 4 people in the mail room. I guess we can do the math.

Unhappy

My friend is in Stateville and we encounter a big problem with mail last time – it looks like the mailroom forgets to seal the envelopes. I’m getting unsealed letters for the last months. About 30% of his letters get lost. Also I got an empty envelope once, the letter has definitely got lost as the envelope wasn’t sealed.
Has anyone encountered the same problem?
I thought to write to the warden, but haven’t found his official email.
