Excerpt from Message

Dear Mother: This beautiful statue greeted our eyes in the harbor as we sailed into the island Curacao (it has a canal right through the city of Willemstad just like a city in the Netherlands. We have already visited Venezuela and its capital Caracas is a beautiful mountain settings the Dutch of Aruba is next and then Nassau and so back to Chicago and Hardey.
