Excerpt from Message

Dear Mother, I am finally going to see some of the Cathedrals. I’ve seen so many now that they are all beginning to look sort of alike. I guess that’s because we have to go through them so fast. I never get tired of seeing them though. Tonight we are going to be in Kenilworth, and I have just now come back from seeing the ruins of Kenilworth Castle in the pouring rain. Now I know why it is so green in England, it rains almost every day. Doesn’t even stop when the sun comes out. Pat Crowe
