Excerpt from Message

Dear Mother, Just a note from Venice – many pictures of [illegible], Byron and Desdemona houses on the Grand Canal, courtesy of a marvelous gondolier who pointed them out to us. Am fascinated and love Italy, although I have a strange feeling of familiarity with the city, as if I’ve lived here for years before. The weather is very much “like home” I can see a little, though, of B’s “…now that April’s there” but cannot confess homesickness in the least. People are charming but much to tell you. The children – are out of this world. More later. – y/c in the bwc V.
