Description

Angelo writes following his long ride back from Napoli to La Spezia via Rome where he has been to visit his grandmother. Throughout the trip he envisioned her each time he rested his eyes. His parents asked about her as soon as he arrived at the door and he hated to lie. The following day he told them about her test results, and they were really worried. Rosina wanted to leave right away. Angelo also didn't tell his grandfather about her not being well so as not to upset him. Marietto would like to write her. Angelo writes an additional note asking his aunt Antonietta to confirm how his nonna is doing.
