[1][letterhead]New York, June 7, 1893My dear Wanda, I think I wrote to Helen last & so now it must be your turn. I’m disappointed not getting any letters here except the ones sent to Portage & forwarded, & one I think from mama. Tell mama she need not be afraid of letters addressed [c/o?] of the Century, for if I’m in Europe when they get here Mr Johnson will forward them. It has been very hot here & I felt all the time as if somebody has rubbed the inside of my underclothes with very sticky molasses. The papers said that the day before yesterday was the hottest 5th of June
