Correspondence between Jeronim De Rada and Thimi Mitko

Manjola Tërshana


From the research done at the Central Archive of the State, I have found about 49 letters of Thimi Mitko sent to the Arberesh writer and researcher Jeronim De Rada. Studying these letters there were brought into light some private aspects of Mitko’s and Derada’s lives. In addition, the correspondence reveals the relationship between the two personalities. It testifies on different phases of their lives and particularly on some thoughts about the political situation Albania was passing in 1880. We learn about the difficulties and the calvary honored figures of the Albanian letters passed to publish their works. Through this correspondence, it was also learned something more about their relationship with Dora D'Istria and Dhimitër Kamarda or Abdyl Frashëri. In this scientific study, it is used a research and file, analyzing, deducing and synchronizing method.
