Estimado Dr. Houser:

Tengo algunos meses de estar aqui en Italia invitado para pintar algunos murals y a la vez hacerme un chequeo medico pues mi salud no hara tan Buena al salir de Nicaragua.

Hace pocos dias dias recibi carta de Orlando Pastora donde me manifiesta su preocupacion por el no cumplimiento todavia de pintar el mural en ANDEN.
Al respect quiero manifestarle que el proyecto sigue vigente y que sera ejecutado al momento que retorne a Nicaragua.

El motive por el cual no se hiso de immediate fue porque al presenter el diseño, los dirigentes de ANDEN dispusierón cambiar el diseño o integrar otras actividades como dirigentes y hacer un studio más profundo sobre el tema y a lo cual yo accede.

Le manifiesto Dr. que a mi tambien me da mucha pena esta falta de cumplimiento. Yo estaré regresando los primeros dias de diciembre a Nicaragua. Pero le mantendré informado. en espera de su comprensión le saluda fraternalmente,

Leonel Cerrato V.

Dear Dr. Houser:

I have a couple more months here in Italy invited to paint a couple murals while I have a medical checkup, my health has not been as good since leaving Nicaragua
A couple days ago I received a letter from Orlando Pastora where he expressed to me your concern with how the ANDEN mural still has not been completed.

In this respect I would like to express that the project continue and that it would be finished when I return to Nicaragua.

The reason why it wasn't done immediately was because when the design was presented, the directors of ANDEN wanted to change the design or integrate other things and to do a more in depth study about the theme.

I express to you Dr. that I as well am sad about the lack of completion. I will be returning to Nicaragua the first couple days of December, but I will keep you informed. In hope that you understand,


Leonel Cerrato V.
