Excerpt from Message

Castellana Hilton Madrid, Spain July 1, 1960 Dearest Mother, I saw Mimi a couple of days ago in Rome. It was so nice to see someone from home. We went to St. Peter’s yesterday, or the day before, and found that it was his feast. The Cathedral was all lighted and there were processions, singing, and dressing of the bronze statue of St. Peter, right down to the Pope’s ring. That Church is simply magnificent 120 ft. long with 44 altars. Oh, it was beautiful Well, we hope to be heading for home on the Queen Elizabeth in about 3 weeks. Lovingly, Sharon
