Dear Mother – We have had a good trip thus far, visiting New Orleans, Miami, Washington DC. We are enjoying Phila[delphia] especially because it is the “old home town” and there are many relatives and friends tomorrow. We leave for New York, [illegible] and then we’ll start for home. Affectionately – Marie Withers
