Bar Harbor Maine
My dear Miss Shelley
I see by the N.Y. Times that the Bergensfjord docks next Saturday.
May I ask you to send the [enclosed] letter to the boat, and if you see Mde Schwimmer tell her that I hope she can come directly here. She wishes to see Miss Balch and me together, if Miss Balch cannot come at that time I will telegraph Mde Schwimmer in your care. Perhaps you will wire me when Mde Schwimmer arrives, boats are so uncertain now-days and Miss Balch will be hurried during her short stay.
I was very glad for your letter and for the fine start already made. I am afraid that I can't do much letter writing from here. Perhaps later you will send me a list of accepted names and I will add suggestions.
Always faithfully yours
July 23 1916
