My dear Alice
I have been hoping to stop at Girard on my way to Colorado but find that the transportation they sent me is over the Northwestern Road, so shall have to try to manage it on my way home.
Why can't you come to Boulder to see me there? It would be cooler and give you a little vacation. I lecture from Aug 3d to Aug 8th.
I am rather tired out with many commencements and am glad to have them all ended next week.
Have you yet heard from Marcet?
Always your loving sister J. A.
