Excerpt from Message

Rome – Jan 13th 1902 / My dear May – Your pretty postal conveying good wishes received. In return I send you this “Holy Father” his complexion is more like alabaster and his fingers are transparent. He looks more frail than the picture, but the same sweet smile, and he had a scarlet cloak around him, when I had the pleasure of seeing him. I expect you speak German quite fluently by this. Much love, S.P. Reedy
