Description

Rosina writes the first part of the letter to her mother and then addresses a page to her aunt. She expresses her concern about her mother’s health and says that if she lived closer she would have been there immediately. She has received a package with dry items dated October 20. She implores her aunt to take care of her mother and she sends her greetings to the other family members. Peppino adds to the letter telling his mother-in-law that Angiolino returned safely and that his update on his grandmother’s health has Rosina wishing she could immediately go to her.
