June 19-1951-Tues / You'd love this wonderful place. I'm anxious to see it. I wrote Pope I'd be in Des Moines Friday P.M., 22nd on the Rock Island R.R. (6 hours). It's warm now-now rain 'till this A.M. I'm taking it easy and studying. Chi schools not out- a big one across the st-such a noise at recess! I'm still enjoying my sweet family-Love to all Mamo--
Even though I lived in Hyde Park for four years, I only visited the Museum of Science and Industry once. The only picture I can find in my personal collection is when I took pictures of Flat Stan around Chicago landmarks for my mother's elementary school class in Oklahoma. I like the pond better than the parking lot!

Flat Stan make so much more sense than the Barbie I used to haul around for pictures.
