Excerpt from Message

5:10pm Th Jul. 15 Somewhere in Texas - As I near the end of my journey I think of the dear community of Alcala Park. Outside people look very hot; in our drawing rrom it is very comfortable and very cloistered. There are several [illegible] Fathers on the train; one spoke to us. He knows and ergo admires Father B. your Chicago friend from whom he [illegible] Mother M. joins me in sending love and begging prayers. M.D.
