I am getting very well, my face is not so thin as when I came here. I am stronger much. I am reading “Harry Lorrequer,” etc. I wonder where everybody is of those I love. Agnes is at home. The rest of the family must have returned from Swampscott. We are all at home. Sallie is in Baltimore, etc. I think Miss Wyeth has hardly ventured to leave 129 this summer. Got word to Arthur to-day.
