Your telegram came and I wrote Crowell4 at once. We5 have been held up in this very dirty hotel for 8 days waiting for two seats in a chair car from Boston2 to New York6,—a five hour journey! We leave tomorrow. The heat here has been terrible. After several weeks at the Asticou Inn7 where no spirits are served and the food was very poor, I now dine at the good old Parker House8, drink a cocktail every night and go to a movie show every afternoon!

My love to you and your two9 ladies10. W.
