Gardner, Harriet. [Carta] 1942 Sept. 16, Georgetown, CT [para] Candido Portinari, [Rio de Janeiro, RJ]. [inglês][datilografado]
Hail to our new allies – and dear Marie:
Here are the seeds I promise to get you – they should arrive about in time for your spring planting. Mine are quite successful – planted according to directions on the package. You remember – it was a salad green we all liked one evening in Miami Beach.
Doesn’t it seem a long time ago! And all your friends are sunk because you are not all coming to the U.S. again this year.
We are all working hard – hoping we are being effective toward winning the war – each in his small way. My own effort seems rather attenuated, but I don’t know anything else to do.
Marie Sermolino and I often speak of you and think of you so far away and of the fun we all had together last winter. Anyway – your lovely little boy is too young to be touched by this war – and we must make it the last – so he never will be.
Good luck and love to you all – and may it be not too long before we meet again!
