Description

Peppino writes about Angiolino's accident while working. He has a swollen gland on his groin and needs 8 days of complete rest. Rosina adds one page to the letter in which she describes her daily activities and points out that the flour has run out and they cannot find any pasta (“oggi domenica cuciniamo i, spaghetti, finito la farina e più non si trova un filo di pasta”). She would like to send the remaining cigarettes before they smoke them all (“Vorrei spedirti quelle altre sigarette per levarmele di casa prima che non li fumano tutte”).
