Bar Harbor, Maine.
I want to write you about the twenty years report which seems to me very stunning, perhaps because it records such splendid pieces of works, thorough and varied. I read every word of it with the greatest [illegible]. It is as beautiful as ever [page 2] up here but a little cold. Mary has gone down to Boston for a few days but we move into our little house next Monday. She was delighted with the notion of a hall clock and seemed to feel none of my reluctance -- but then she hadn't seen the clock we were about to grab. I do hope that you are coming early. L. deK. B. sends you her most cordial greetings. [page 3]
And I am as always devotedly yours
