Description

Vincenzo comments to his son that he spent a happy Christmas but missed his family like a shepherd misses his flock. He reiterates the details of how his son spent Christmas Eve, eating from 7-10, then dancing until they finally went to church. He is very touched that Angelo gifted a bouquet of roses to his grandmother for Christmas and wishes to show the same thoughtfulness. He is glad they received the packages. Greetings are conveyed on behalf of Maria and Gemma and their families. The next part of the letter is for Vincenzo’s grandson, Angelino. He praises Angelino for being so attentive to his grandmother and for all the good things she writes about her grandson. He is hopeful that under De Gasperi conditions for the Italian working class will improve.
