Postcard from Ruggero Bacci, written in Italian, to his son Alfo Bacci, May 25, 1941.

Internee Bacci writes to his youngest son, Alfo, that he is pleased to hear that everyone is well. Bacci is happy with his son's school results. Bacci tells his son not to cause his mother any concern, and to continue to help her. He asks his son to give his regards to family and friends.

Bacci was interned for almost three years. In his absence, his wife Erminia (Minnie) suffered a serious nervous breakdown and was hospitalized at length. Bacci's oldest son Aldo was forced to quit high school to help support the family. When his father was released and returned home, Aldo received notice that he was conscripted into the Canadian Army; however, he did not serve overseas.
