Subject: WH Pool 9/23 #1: South Lawn crowd count

Good morning on this simply beautiful first day of fall on the South Lawn, where President Obama is about to welcome His Holiness, Pope Francis.

The ceremony is open to credentialed press, but a sense of program is below.

Also, a White House official shares the official crowd count: 11,000 ticketed guests. The figure does not count staff, military, press or other members of the official parties.
