Water Gap 6 mo. 1. 1872 [6.1.1872] Dear Chelly Thy mother is writing to Aunt Mary so I take her place to reply to thy letter. We were very glad to hear that the measles have made no further ravages in the family & that Anna had resumed her usual attacks on the beefsteak As for ourselves I hope we are progressing favorably. The family retires early - keep newport hours in going to be & more fashionable ones for ringing, so that if we do not get enough sleep it is not for want of opportunity
