Dear Rita:
Again I am taking advantage of Martha's trip to Cuba to
request additional material. Robert Bach told me he had a
good meeting with you last month, and that you were working
on some of the material. He also told me you were not expecting
me this summer and would call soon. PLEASE call when you are
in the U.S. (if you and Esther are still coming). I may be
going to N.Y. around the middle of the month and maybe we could meet.

Martha Bustillo is a Cuban student here atU.F. who has just
finished her M.A. with us. She is an expert on quantitative
methods and wrote an excellent M.A. thesis on the D.R. I
would appreciate it if you would give her access to the
interviews:to check on some data, for which the codes are
too aggregated. For example, I did a breakdown comparing
estado civil and household composition, but my numbers do
not add up (there are 4 missing). Please let her check the
interviews against my figures to clear up the error. ES
persona de total confianza y muy capaz.
I am also asking for some otherldata to respond to some
detailed comments I received on my article from Lois Smith
(who works with Fred Padula) and is writing a book on Cuban
women. Please send me whatever information you can and if
necessary, let Martha collect it and I will pay her for her time.
Fred Padula has asked me to be on his LASA panel on Labor in
Cuba (which is in Sept.) and I would like to be able to
respond to their questions.
I just returned yesterday from my two week trip to Bogota, Quito,
and SAntiago. Santiago was particularly exciting hay tanta
esperanza. I am sending you a small booklet they developed
for the textileras that I thought might interest you.
I will be away from Gainesville much of next year. I will be at
the Kellogg Institute in NOtre DAme in the Fall and at Northwestern
319 Grinter Hall
Gainesville Florida 32611 USA
Phone (904) 392 0375

University from the end:of March till the beginning of June.
I would still like to participate in the proceedings for the
FMC Congress if there is time between January and March.
Please let me know the date. add whether you still plan to
present something on this research.
I hope to talk to you sometime in June, either from the U.S.
or Havana.
