|Tornaghi to Bottesini (Genova, 10 Jul 1859)|
|Hotel della Lega Italiana
After six days of wasted effort to cash the promissory note for the reason that it lacked the necessary stamp, I was obliged to make do with expenses of 81 francs. At this time, only by means of an inducement of another 120 francs, plus another 35 as a gift to the broker, I have been able to receive 600 francs net. In the circumstances in which I found myself I could not do anything else.
I thank you infinitely for the attention that you have given me and I hope soon to be able to thank you better in person. I
am on the point of making a good deal in Spain; in this way I will leave for perhaps many years this beautiful Italy but which has cost me more than enough sorrow.
Ti saluto e credimi sempre
L'aff.mo tuo amico
