5 Have been meaning to write for so long. Left Alassio today, & am on my
6way to Venice. Have just been to see the Leaning Tower, which is
7splendid. Am going on tomorrow to Bologna. No place is so delightful
8as my peaceful little Alassio I'm writing this because I long to know
9how you all are. I don't forget you.
