Letter from Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli to Daniel Mascioli, October 22, 1940
This is a handwritten, one page letter from Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli to his son, Daniel Mascioli. Written on lined paper with blue ink. Dated October 22, 1940.
Here, Leo writes about some of the things he and his brother, Antonio (Tony) Mascioli, do to the pass the time:
...You want to know what we are doing here? Not very much as far as work is concerned, but we pass our time fairly well, everything considered. Church service every Sunday, also the rosary every night by an able interned priest. Also quite a few fellow prisoners organize some funny entertainment and I tell you some of them are very clever. We certainly get good laughs whenever they do them and forget our trouble while we listen.
October 22, 1940
