Excerpt from Message

Dear Pat, Larry, et al – Arrived last nite 10:30 and for me it was like coming home. Today the natives say it’s too warm for them (just like April in Portland 0 about 68-70). We are all so delighted to be comfortable for the first time since Lisbon. The people are wonderful! We looked around town today – Hope to to Newry tomorrow. We’re in Paris several hours at the airport – It was still light when we landed here at 10:30 – amazing! Taxi driver said that hadn’t gotten around to removing the Nelson’s stature yet! Kathleen
