Wed. [28 May 1952]

How are you dears?

First day in Houston. Address and banquet tonight. Tomorrow I put on royal regalia and attend Mass at 10, and at night 7:30 I line up with the Convocation Procession. Then Friday I take a trip by motor with the Rev. Fathers along the shore. On Saturday Corpus Christi with autographing (such as it is) at 3 p.m. Weather thundery and warm.

Love, Ned.
