ABSTRACT

CHARMAINE: Dear Father, Many thanks for your letter. Only silence can keep us apart. Exile is not

as far away as the distance of silence. Your letter came at the time when I was begining to feel very lonely. An intimate friend of mine, Diliza, who like you is one of those people who still believe they can change the world. And now I am afraid that exile may snatch him away from me like it did to you.
