this is the second part of the letter
The left side states:
I answer to what you desire to know
Melissa arrived in America in 1920, March 22, on the ship Dante Alighieri, when she was 5 years old, her correct name is Carmela

I hope everything goes well[/color]
(This was very difficult to understand, he named the ship as "Dand lichiri" and I had to perform a search on Ellis Island to get confirmation, Carmela was travelling with her mother Concetta Mangiagli and with her siblings Gaetano and Giuseppe)

The right side states
I finish here since I have nothing else to tell you.
Greetings and hugs from me to the whole family. God bless you.
Your father Paolo Bonfiglio
