Sherri Williams wrote of her travel in Italy in a letter to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Williams.
“We hitchhiked up to Florence (Italy) last week for three days. I went with Martha and Peggy (the 60-year-old Scottish lady I told you about). I also learned something about her daughter, Helen. She was chosen “Young Scott of 1966.” That’s something like Miss America except more on intellilect [sic] and character than beauty. I’m meeting the most interesting people! Martha knew of an orphanage in Florence, so we got to stay there for free. They cooperate with ours in Rome, but it is not Baptist. The first day I saw the Cathedral, the baptistry, a church and museum. The next day it was two museums and three churches, and the next it was three museums and two churches. Put the heat with the crowds and the walking all day, and you have a worn out tourist. . . Florence was well worth it all — I’ve never seen so many really famous art works, paintings and statues. I especially enjoyed Michelangelo’s “David.”
