6Dear Lucy,
8I’m staying in this little village in Thuringia among the fir trees,
9for the ?“Nar-lur”. Bad Nauheim seems to have done me much good. I met
10I’ve met a nice American minister & his sweet wife here, who say
11they met you last year in Switzerland, his cousin is, I think, married
12to your sister. It was so nice to meet some one who had seen you in
13this out of the world spot. My movements are not quite sure yet.
14I’ll write soon I am so glad you seem better
18^I got a beautiful long letter from you the other day that I ought to
