AwburyFirstdayMy dear WifeMy usual bad handwriting will probably be exaggerated today as I am attempting to write in a room not over lights[?]. We have been keeping the house darkened to keep out the heat. This is the third day of an unusually hot spell & there is no signs of its mitigating yet-- Carrie sent Henry over last night to sleep as she found the thermometer in his room stood at 90 at bed time, but she & Will declined to move & I believe they did not suffer. Will in fact can sleep through anything & Carrie I dare say gained as much by being in another house
