Instead of going to my 10 o’clock I went to the Immigration office and was back for my 11 o’clock with a new tourist card.  Copied music – Saw about the robbery in the newspaper “Excelsior” Aside from misspelling our names, getting the wrong address and quoting the wrong things stolen (for Jean) the article was Interesting!’

Jean went to Tepozlan at 7:10 with an excursion.  I wait very impatiently for a telegram or some word that will tell me Arnold has crossed the border safely. I write as though he were a criminal or something but I don’t like it at all that Tony is going with them. I can’t see the necessity of it so I am worried! Wrote cards to Charlotte and Lenore, read, did everything but chew my fingers!

Thought I’d leave for Laredo at 8:30 am but as the 4:45 made better connections I just waited. Met Frances Neville, also Mex bound, so we walked over town together – Visited Joske’s Store – Sat in the Gunter Lounge and listened to an orchestra broadcast luncheon music. Very good – Got the 4:45 and met two people there. Vincent Rousseau from North Carolina and  Jean Crawford from Colorado Springs. We went all the way together. The trip would have been terrible without their company. They scenery is boring! So different from the beautiful green around San Antonio!
