'My dears: this is but a brief note to welcome you to the new world, where you are now no longer all too far away from us.

At the end of 1939 his parents moved again to Florida and then to New York, where they lived from August 1940 until the end of their lives. It is only with Adorno's move to California at the end of 1941 that his letters to his parents start arriving once more, reporting on work and living conditions as well as on fri.
