Frances and Rachel returned from San Antonio today. They visited with Anne and David Walch for a week while Susanna, Leonard and I fended for ourselves. We had a good time.

Postcard back:

THE ALAMO
San Antonio, Texas
Erected in 1718 as a church and fortress, it became the symbol of Texas independence. During the Texas-Mexican Independence War in 1836, it was defended and lost to the last Texan. Soon "Remember the Alamo" became synonymous with Texas Independence.
