Dear Brother1;

We4 have been here2 for three weeks. I am working hard and very happily. Will be here until late in September. The weather is bad—rains almost every day. The food is very slim—fish about three times a day, lobster until I wish the beast had never been created. I think God made a mistake when he created fish at all! As for bacon 000.

I have a nice little room up under the roof to write in, like the "rose bower5" in the old house6 where we first lived.

Love to you and Meta7 W.
