Excerpt from Message

Dear Aunt Pat, Uncle Larry, Kate and Steve. Hi! Madrid is certainly a beautiful city, the weather has been beautiful every single day except its very hot and humid - 93° yesterday. We [?] have gone to the Prado Museum twice already and have seen the Goya [?], El Greco, Rafael, Rubens [?] originals. While there, I saw 2 of my Go-nop-go [?] (former) teachers - 2 Jesuit - It was a pleasant surprise. She expected to find so many good shopping buys [?] but have found few. Everything is so expensive. The montillas [?] we've seen are $5.00 and up and aren't nearly as pretty as the ones you sent us from Memphis [?]. Tonight we are going to a bullfight. Bye for now - Love, Sue
