Glenwood Mission Inn RIverside CA 1920 Mary Glessner to Harry Glessner

Postmarked March 10, 1920 "We are staying at the Mission Inn and are occupying the Presidential Suite. How is that for class? Tthis is a wonderful place to stay and just as wonderful a place in which to eat. Love to all, Mary." Addressed to H C Glessner, 1228 S Main Street, Findlay Ohio. The next year when Margaret Weaver, my mom was 11, in 1921 she describes on p13 of her autobiography "With my parents' friends, Irv and Stella Pearne and their son, John, we drove up into the mountains and the redwood trees to Big Bear for a picnic, eating beside a gurgling mountain stream, where John and I played making a dam in the icy water. Easter Weekend was spent in RIverside, in an elegant, old hotel, Mission Inn. On Easter morning we joined in a procession of cars ascending Mt Robidoux in the dark to participate in a sunrise service."
