hey hou french inmates
i would need the following translated into french:

"Dear Friend,

Enclosed you will find the secret papers Armin gave me. I hope they will'be helpful and meet your expectations. Enjoy your stay at home, I hope we'll meet again soon,

All the best!"

this goes beyond my very, very very very basic french skills so I would be very thankful for any help

Ok, a quick shot - but keep in mind my french, while good and correct, is tuned to "Switzerland dialect",
kinda like Austrian German to Deutsch German german (I guess).

"Cher ami," - if it's a guy, "Chère amie," if it's a girl

Ci-joint (tu trouveras - you will find, obsolete here for formal reasons), le papier secret qu'Armin m'a donné. J'espère qu'il te sera utile et qu'il comblera tes attentes.
(Enjoy your stay at home greatly varies among french dialects and countries - Profites de ces quelques jours à ton domicile - could be one), j'espère qu'on se reverra bientôt.

(All the best - also greatly varies, I'd rather hear some native frenchman's version. But you could use "Mes meilleurs voeux", "Tous mes voeux").

And some extra tuning can be done depending on your friend's "status" : simple friend, very fresh acquaintance, etc. "politeness"
and added candy.

I would say "Profite (no "s", it's imperative ) de ces quelques jours chez toi; in English, at home can be at your physical home or in your home country/city, etc, so "chez toi" is more appropriate I think.

as if your insanitys were small


(note that mistranslating lunettes as 'lunaticies' is quite a bit of a leap... but hey, high school french, what do you expect?)
