Dear Joshua,
Our boat was delayed, and we arrived to Newport News, Va. just shortly before the time your letter announced we you would leave Woods Hole. We tried to phone you but the lines were down. I hope the Rockefeller F. has been able to contact you and tell you about us. We sent a postcard from Williamsburg and our luggage from Newport News; we hope you know by now that we are in the U.S. I am still too shy to use the phone, although it seems a very easy operation. Programmes: we plan to come to Madison very soon, after having seen Dr. Pomerat. If possible, I shall take a driving license in New York and get a second hand car there. If impossible, we shall come by some other means, and shall let you know accordingly. It would be very nice to travel with your brother Seymour.
However things go our stay in New York will be limited in time by the Ryans coming back to their house.
We have had a look at colonial Williamsburg and are now starting on a perusal of Washington. Pupa is very excited and I, owing to a very a bad cold, less so; I feel as if I were at the movies, rather than in America. I am also made furious by the fact that a complete anesthesia of my palate does not permit me to feel any taste out of things which my wife declares are wonderful. Yours Luca.
