Santo Domingo, Wed., 21st April 1999
Eduardo Federico Antun
I am sorry that I
could not write to you earlier. I really wanted to express my great
pleasure to have met you during your recent visit to the Dominican
Ever since I was a
little kid, the name of Manuel Hazim was heard constantly coming out
from my father's mouth, with respect and love. The evening that I met
you at my parent's house, I was thinking that my father, wherever he is
now, was very happy to see us as a family together.
I hope to see you
again and to meet the rest of our family in Bazbina, sometime this
coming summer. For a long time I dreamt of this trip to the village we
came from, three generations ago.
