Description

Vincenzo writes in response to Giuseppina’s letter from February 19th. His prayers have been answered, she is cured. He was pleased to hear that Alfredo and family received her and treated her well. He requested her not to argue with Gugliermo and said that he would take care of the relations when he came to America. He sent a suitcase with 20,000 lira through a new company. That morning he went to the bank regarding her ticket for passage to America and they will be contacting her. She would be traveling on the Saturnia or the Vulcania. He worries when he does not regularly receive letters from her. Gianni is preparing to come to Italy to see his paralyzed father. Vincenzo cannot wait for his dear wife to come to America and hug everyone. He feels weird writing her what he is feeling. He closes with regards from: Maria, Gianni, Dali, Rossella, Elenuccia, Tommaso, Elena and Giuseppina and Gemma.
