|Elder Ware and Elder Martell|
After the delivery was made we met up with the Hastings and Bible's for a little driving city tour with Elder Lauper as the tour director. And it's a good thing we did, because we were so disappointed with the horse and buggy tour we took later in the evening. Our guide was nothing like Gus, the guide we had in September. Fortunately, it was a beautiful evening--about 80 with a gentle breeze. Okay, back to the Marc Lauper tour. We took a drive through the City and National Cemeteries to show off the beautiful iron work around the family plots. Neither of the other couples had been to Natchez before, and they loved it! Then we drove around looking at houses, churches, city buildings and business establishments sharing what we remembered from our previous times here. The homes below all face this view of the Mississippi River. Beautiful setting!
|Ok, maybe we learned something. This is the church that inspired the part of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer when Tom and Huck attend their own funeral. Mark Twain attended this church and wondered how the congregants got into the balcony seats. There's an outside door on the side where people of color entered the balcony and were allowed to sit.|
