Excerpt from Message

Havana March 23rd ’04 / We are at last in Havana. Arrived here Monday and so pleased with the place for it is certainly a beauty so foreign like and picturesque. Old Morro Castle is the first thing you see as you come in the harbor and it alone is grand. Went all through it yesterday morning. Expect to leave here Friday but would love to stay about a month longer. Billy
