June 20, 1920
We are just going into the harbor of Marseilles. We have passed up through the Strait of Messina, looking up at beautiful Taormina and snow-crowned Aetna; then between Sardinia and Corsica. It all brought back many old memories.
I find I can post this on board with a British stamp, so I am going to drop it here, which will give it just a week earlier start, for I shall not reach London until a week from today. I might have crossed France and saved a day or two, but I dreaded the long weary journey for I am very tired.
It just occurs to me that possibly the French took also a long letter which I wrote to President Judson from Beirut. Please tell him about it.
I should be home before the middle of July, Loads of love to all. I hope Charles received his check in time for use at graduation. Probably his acknowledgement went to Baghdad.
For the full story of my exciting trip you should come to the special exhibit “Pioneers to the Past: American Archaeologists in the Middle East, 1919-1920,” at the Oriental Institute!
