Article translation help needed

Postby donnalynn829 » 19 May 2016, 14:10

Hi all.

Attached is an article my cousin found among my great aunt's paper. It is in Italian, but from the little we are able to understand (no one reads Italian), it tells about when our uncle, Lou, met his sister, Pasqualina, for the very first time when he was stationed in Italy with the US Army.

If I can have this translated, it would be a wonderful gift for our family.

Thanks in advance.

Donna

Mr. Marsico received a letter form his cousin Louis Imperatrice, about his visit to Canna (Cosenza), where he could hug his sister Pasqualina, who was born in the USA, but went to Italy with her grandmother 35 years ago, and never came back to America.
He writes: "I hope you and your family are fine, and you do what you can to win the war. I'm back from a visit to my sister; I spent two whole days with her. I was very happy to see her for the first time in my life. I have no words to describe my emotions. I met your aunt and cousins, too, and they all are fine. I spent two nights at your mother's and took some pictures, that I will send you. When I'm back to America, I'll be able to talk about something else than war. I'll be able to say I saw the village of my family. The village was not damaged by war. When I was in Africa, I saw several cities. A lot of them are not bad, but I prefer my dear old South Orange

(the second column is from a different article)

I'm not English mother tongue, so the translation can not be perfect...
