1984 Glasgow Cathedral The Chancel postcard -July 23
Hi – we came the 425 miles from London on the train in just 5 hours. Great scenery. Saw Sids daughter & her husband on Sun. at Felixstowe, then on Monday we ate out w/ them & went to the theater.
We are in a new dorm here in Glasgow & have walked downtown. It is light here past 10 P.M. & HOT during the day. Got Mothers letter here today & hope you have apples & tomatoes to eat soon. Had porridge & fish for bkfst this morning. Had beans available. – Jean & Harold

Postcard to MV
Hi – You would enjoy the beautiful roses, etc. here – the LONG days here have a positive influence. We have been all around Glasgow (& 1 library too) & go to Edinburgh tomorrow.
Had such a nice visit with Cynthia & Murray Park last Sunday & Monday – visited them in Felixstowe & met them in London Monday afternoon, had dinner & went to play at the National Theater.
The lectures are real interesting – hope to remember much – people are enjoyable too – mostly from east or west coast. Much love, Dad & Mother
Glasgow Cathedral The Chancel postcard -mailed 1984
Hi – We got MV's letter today. Went to 2 services here yesterday – dates back to the 14th century.
The group went up to the Trossacks this afternoon, which is the gateway to the Highlands – really narrow roads – feel better when I look out the side window rather than the front window.
Sun. afternoon we saw Loch Lomond – maybe MV knows the song about the Lake.
Did you notice the reference to "Lifeline" in the Upper Room today? God Thought.
There are 1½ pages of Ballantynes in the local phone book – the area that Jean's family came from. She has another connection to the Scots thru the Wallace clan. Haven't seen any W.S.J. here but plenty of news. Love, J & H
