Excerpt from Message

April 30, 1960 Dear Mother Mc Shane, When I saw this card it reminded me of your lecture and the civitates. It was estimated that twenty thousand people had lived here. This is one of the most interesting spots that we have seen. We were on a tour yesterday and saw the Salerno Beach where our troops landed during the war. It is so beautiful there it is difficult to realize that it was a little field. Most Sincerely, Mary K. Felter
