My dear Girls, It seems so long since I saw you that I must write a few words to you to keep you from forgetting your old friend. Besides I am [text missing] acknowledged debt that thy bouquet [text missing] Lilly [text missing] enjoyed it for its helpful arrangement and the kind thought that made it mine.
I hope you have been having a very pleasant time, wherever you are. Did you go to Newport, or did some other place prove to be more attractive? I thought of you often while we were at Catskill, and how much I should like you to be sharing with us the charms of the place, especially while so many of your cousins were there. Perhaps I shall see you there yet some day.
