Excerpt from Message

Dear Mother, Already I have decided that England is much more attractive than the USA. Everything here is green, which is quite a contrast to good old California. I’ve seen most of London, except the famous cathedrals, which I haven’t seen any of. (bad grammer?) When my Aunt is taking us around through the country and villages in Kent we see lots of old 11th & 12th century churches, but I never get to stop and see them. P.F.C.
