Dear Steve,

>> I had the great fortune to "wander" off I-10 in Covington, LA last week on 
my way back to Kentucky from New Orleans. I stopped at the local library and 
inquired as to where Walker Percy was buried. It was quite an "adventure" but 
we located St. Joseph's Abbey and then finally located Percy's simple and 
unadorned grave with some help from one of the brothers.
>> I would be glad to give directions to anyone else who might want to 
undertake such an adventure. <<

Sounds like a real pilgrimage. I think the information on how to find the 
abbey and Percy's grave would be well worth putting on the Percy List.
