    Hello, teachers, That

    Hello, teachers Which sentence is correct?
    1 He wrote me that his wife was not well and his son was very well.
    2 He wrote me his wife was not well and that his son was very well.
    3 He wrote me his wife was not well and his son was very well.

    In my opinion, I think No. 1 is correct, but the answer given in the bok is No.2 What do you think? Thank you!
