Excerpt from Message

Dear Lucille, Just thought I would drop you a line from the “eternal City.” We arrived here late yesterday afternoon from Florence. Today we toured the city by bus. We saw some famous parks, squares, fountains, the Vatican City, St. Peters Square, the Olympic Village and the track [illegible], the Catacombs, the Roman Forum, and many other points of interest – this evening a few of us walked about the city. We stopped at a restaurant called “California” and had hamburgers and sodas. Tomorrow we take another tour to the Vatican City where we will see the Pope. Love Gerald
