Rosina mentions Pasqualino's death. She also refers to a photo of her sister Gemma that she received from her father Vincenzo in New York. Her son Angelo got sick but Rosina tells her mother not to worry. She also discusses money issues and currency exchange.

On the back of the letter, there is an excerpt of Peppino's letter in which he describes Pasqualino's funeral. He mentions that part of the family is from Pozzuoli (Eugenio and Totore). He sent Giuseppina some pasta and cigarettes and invites her not to travel during that moment of the year because of rough sea.
