Description

Angelo writes to his grandmother letting her know that the ship of which he previously spoke was the one she would have been on. He guesses it was God’s plan that she not suffer on such a long journey, and that is would be better for her to leave once the conditions were more favorable. They are out of cigarettes but he hates to ask his grandfather because he already provides so much and anything they ask for requires sacrifice on his part.
