Dear Parents,

I arrived here all OK. I got here at 3:55 this morning. It was 1 hr late at Paris. I am feeling so fine when arrived here. Ha! Will write soon.

A penny for your thoughts … Built in 1909, Merchants National Bank Building (currently home to Barnes and Thornburg) is 17 stories (245 feet) tall. Today, the Chase Tower is Indianapolis’ tallest building at 48 stories (830 feet) tall.

What’s the tallest building you’ve visited? In Indy and elsewhere?
