Hi, could someone please translate this into English....Thanks!!
Spett.le Signor Petrarca,
ho ricevuto la sua mail, ed ho dato incarico al mio segretario particolare di prendere informazioni a proposito. Non le nascondo che la burocrazia italiana ÃƒÂ¨ difficile da aggirare per cui potrebbero esserci difficoltÃƒÂ per soddisfare la sua richiesta.
Sarebbe utile allo scopo sapere se ha ancora dei parenti in vita in quel di Fornelli di cui Lei abbia notizia. Aspettando notizie in merito, e nell'attesa di averne anch'Io nuove a rtiguardo, con l'occasione le porgo cordiali saluti.
Kindlest Mr Petrarca,
