LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Dear Mr. Grattan-Domínguez,
I am a retired Mexican ambassador, now residing in Guadalajara (Zapopan, to be exact). Today, I read the latest edition of that wonderful publication, “Ojo del Lago”
I was thrilled to read an article by Rosamaría Casas, a wonderful lady whom I met back in the early seventies, when we both served at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C. I would love to get in touch with Rosamaría. Would you be kind enough to forward this message to her?
Thanking you in advance, I am
Carlos Gonzalez Magallón
Our Editor Replies:
Dear Mr. Ambassador Gonzalez-Magallon,
Thanks very much for your kind e-mail. Regarding our mutual friend, Rosamaria, we have heard little from her for the past several years. She had left the Lakeside area to relocate in San Luis Potosi, where she still had many friends, some going back all the way to her university days. The last I heard anything about her was some ten years ago, when a colleague of mine was in San Luis and while visiting a convent saw Rosamaria in one of the apartments. They had known each other at the Ojo, and Rosamaria was quick to say that she had not become a nun, but rather was living there because the rent was very cheap. Late Update: The address/phone number is Residencia Hogar, Paz y Alegría, A.C., Mariano Otero #481, San Luis Potosí, phone 444) 413-0953 and (444) 811-6466. Buena Suerte!
