Excerpt from Message

Mon 8/12/57 P.S. wish I had you here / Dear Mother, Well when I saw these doors I about died. I think about a year ago in a [illegible] class a question was given on them. They are a beautiful as can be. I’ve loved Florence for all the history that was evolved here. On the tour a lot came back as the guide talked. Saw the[illegible] & Uffizi Palace & all the beautiful paintings. Love Mother
