Awbury Mar. 3. 1907My dear CousinsI enclose Mrs Eliots letter to Carrie describing her house and giving you two weeks refusal of it from Mar. 1. as this letter will go by the "Kaiser" Mar. 5 it will leave very little since I fear for you and I would be obliged if you would cable me "yes" or "no" after receiving it by which I will understand- "Yes," to mean that I may lease it for the summer for you or "No" to mean that you do not care for it. The rental $1200 = is for the summer season and is not $100 per. mo. but more than $300 per mo. If you were there less than four months June 1st to Ocr 1st is what most people spend there although May is often pleasant and October almost always so. But the mails and train service change early in October and do not begin with the summer schedule until the middle of June. The enclosed photograph shows the house situation and I have no doubt you can get plenty of friends to keep you company as the place is much admired on this side of the Atlantic.Affectionately your cousinThomas P. Cope
