Excerpt from Message
Paris, October 10th, 1902 Dear May and Everybody, I am writing on this card and sending these cards though we are in Paris but have none from here as yet. The windows of this Cathedral are simply beyond everything I have seen at least so they impress me. The church reminds me some of Canterbury. When Maggie and I moved out at 6.30 yesterday morning, we felt like [illegible] would be more acceptable train Reims but since we had planned it, we went and I am so glad as it is so beautiful. St Reim is equally interesting. There is entouched in a massive rich shrine the remains of St. Reim who baptized Clovis. Near the Cathedral is the Palace of the Arch Bishop, titled of Lorraine – quite an imposing residence. The little women who sold me these postals informed me that is very rich and not very charitable. That the last Arch Bishop was very poor from his charities and so greatly loved – this one not. So you see I was in Reims long enough for some church gossip.
