Summary:
Mia Hasterlik writes to Giulia Hasterlik while sailing to New York City from London. She states that she has been sailing for exactly one week now. She describes her fear and horror during her last days in London, as it was during this time that the Seige of London took place, and expresses her gratitude about the fact that Giulia was safe in Switzerland and no, after all, with her in London. She states that Thomas had been freed from internment camp and that she is unsure of how she will earn a living for herself when she arrives in the US, as she will be arriving without a penny. She states that she is glad that she will now be able to write as much as she wants in her letters and also states, "God willing this ghastly war will soon end so that we can finally be together again."
