Excerpt from Message

Oct. 15 Dear Mother, Am now visiting the last country of our trip, and find Madrid one of the prettiest cities of Europe. The Alcala Gate shown here does not look too much like the one at school, but the name’s the same anyway! Passed by one of your houses on tour today, but did not have time to visit. Went to Toledo yesterday and am leaving for Seville today. Mary Schaub
