Excerpt from Message

April 30, 1960 / We leave here tomorrow on the SS Asia and arrive in Pakistan on May 11. / Dear Mother Furray, It is understandable after seeing only a small part of Italy how so much literature and are should come from here. There is an amazing contrast of the old and new in Rome. We were surprised to see ultra-modern apartment house (all with flowers from each porch) and the railway station surpasses anything I have seen in the USA – next to it ruins. I hope our slides of our audience with the Pope turn out well. There were thousands of people there and we had an excellent seat to take pictures. Most sincerely, Mary K. Felton
