Rue Taur 69,
25th April, 1939.
Sir Walter Citrine,
My Dear Friend,
Many thanks for your letter of the 19th of April which is a balm for my sufferings.
My wife and daughters remain in Alicante in the private house of Senor Munoz Vizcaino, Lieutenant Colonel of the Carabineros, a very moderate person in politics, who promised me that they would be hidden in his house until they could leave by boat or return to Valencia to the house of my fathers.
My wife's name is Carmen Belloque Amargos and she is 41. My daughters' names are Carmen, Amparo, and Amelia Tomás Belloque, and their ages are 19, 17 and 15 respectively. I am sending you their photographs.
In case they have gone away to Valencia my mother's name is Ramona Taengua and her address is Barrio Obrero de Ramon de Castro, 24 Valencia.
Both my wife and my daughters are without any luggage and without any funds to live on.
For this reason dear friend Citrine I am very anxious about them and I beg you to arrange for their departure from Spain which is the only thing which can ease my anxiety.
In anticipation of your reply,
(SIGNED) PASCUAL TOMAS.
