Excerpt from Message

October 8 / One day of wonderful sightseeing ended at Castel Gandolfo where we waited in torrents of rain for our audience – it was well worth it – the Holy Father looked well & gave his blessing in Italian – German (big delegation of Swiss) English, French & Spanish. Rome is marvelous & we are steeped in its atmosphere – Dined at Passetto first evening – al fresco - Alfredos last nights [illegible] at the Albergo near Stadreans Villa as I write – Two cats and a dog are waiting for crumbs from the rich man’s table. The day of reckoning is approaching – we sail Oct 27 – It has been a wonderful, enjoyable experience. Love to you both from both of us Polly
