After spending a week into her three-month prison sentence for tax evasion, Lauryn Hill sent a letter to her fans via her Tumblr page to inform them she is fine and well.

In her missive, L. Boogie said that it took her time to get adjusted to prison life but she is being treated favorably and is getting along with her fellow inmates.

She writes:

“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH”

Ms. Hill is serving her sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn. The complex is described as a minimum security facility where inmates live in “barracks-type” conditions.

The former Fugees member also thanked individual fans who have sent her letters while she’s been in prison.

It’s good to see that Lauryn Hill is in good spirits. Stay strong, MLH!
