Corrispondenza 179111 My Dear Elsie1

Isabelle3 left me yesterday and she sails for home from Genoa4 tomorrow. I follow her two weeks from today and sail on the Königin Louise5, arriving in New York6 August 6th. I wanted two weeks more of Venice, but I am so lonely that I scarcely know whether it will pay.
