Excerpt from Message

You have to see this place to realize its size + beauty. Solid granite + so full of art + historic treasures. Never saw such tapestries. Brilliant colors + made in Spain. Some even appear to have three dimensions. Chapel modeled after St Peters, with large dome over 250 ft high. More when I see you. Going to Toledo tomorrow for the day. Fly to Sevella probably Sat Love [illegible]
