(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
At one I almost went with James and Betty to see the Monte Alban Jewels which I saw last year but fate or something told me to go on home and I found a letter from Carsey waiting for me! Bless his heart! Was I ever glad to hear from anyone. They had fed him so far on liquids, mostly hot water, and he wanted me to bring him “un bistek con papas fritas en los bolsillos” (steak and fries in my pockets) when I went down. But I imagine that by that time he will be on for regular meals.
