Title

January 17, 1943. Letter from Danny Badia to Leona Badia, née De Nardo

Subject

Italian-American, 1943

Description

Danny suggests that Leona has a one-track mind because she is unwavering in her decisions. He says he will try to be fair with her: she can come to Detroit when she is ready, set the engagement, pick the ring, and they will be married when she is ready. It is his way of doing things fifty-fifty: she can do all of the thinking and he can do all of the waiting.
