to me directly first -- about the sum of 150 francs which mother is to receive monthly so far nothing has 
been received yet, therefore I went up to the Municipal authority of Serino and I made a certificate of claim, 
which took place yesterday that I went at Avellino to the American Red Cross and I made the ncessary 
claim so therefor when the money will reach us you will be notified immediately. About the case -- It is at 
the High Court of Appeal, which if there was no hope of winning it would have had been unncessary to 
appeal but we live with a hope of winning the case. It is not up to me but it is up to the concience of the 
Judges and the confidence of our lawyer. About the postponement of the case. It is not so necessary, 
because I belive that its discussion will take time yet and probably you will be here in time. Do you 
understand. Your brother Francesco Rodia]
