[6]Clinton Day of Oakland some time I believe – she knows about you from me, & wants to meet you. I have only written you a gossipy letter after all, but what else can you expect, when I have been too busy for six months, to have a serious thought. I hope my southern trip will give me a little rest but I rather doubt it, for many friends & aquain- tances are going too, [7]& I shall probably be in as much of a [illegible] as ever. When you do come east in your rambles, you must of course come to us for a time at least, we will try to keep the world away in order to devote our- selves to you, only give us warning – [ With?] a “Happy pen [illegible]” wherever you are, I am very truly your friend Anne W. Cheney
