The letter said:
To my son Peng,
I’ve made many calls to you, but you never picked up. This ad is probably the only thing that can reach you. Mom and dad won’t force you to get married any more. Please go back home for Spring Festival this year!
Offbeat China explained the cultural and social meaning behind the mom's act.
