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. Matthew passed the entrance exams for Loyola Academy and is looking forward to next September. Best wishes, Virginia & Ricky
