Dear Hedda, today is a bit better, I'm all fixed in a place and soon I'll have more or less a routine, one thing that I need in order to feel all right. I'll sure be a good husband and I'll like The monotonous, regular life.

I left Algiers about a week ago, I had a very rough trip by plane, rain and fog and wind and I was really scared. I'm now staying in a big house. I spent most of the Time here in big old houses with old dusty furniture (and that's bread for me: I made lots of drawings). I'll write you more in the future about Italy and me and things. Now I'm confused and busy and feel like drunk all the time. I'd rather tell you things. As usual I didn't tell but to you where I am and don't tell anybody. I didn't receive letters from you since I left. Love you S.
