On my way now to this place of interest. So much to see May have to come again to see it all. I have a very pleasant place to stay Symphony Hall and Faneuil Hall and C.S. buildings near. Wish you could share sights with me. Cool this a.m. I thank you for all you did to help have such a good visit with Turners. / Love, / Mamamie / July 24, 1948

The museum is no longer free, as it was in the 1940s, but seeing the wonderful pieces of art there is worth the price of admission.
