01678[1][letterhead]Boston, Mass. June 12 1893Dear Louie – I have been so crowded & overladen with enjoyments lately that I have lost trace of time & have so much to tell you I scarce know where & how to begin. When I reached New York I called on Johnson & told him I meant to shut myself up in a room & finish my articles & then go with Keith to Europe. But he paid no attention to either my hurry or Keiths & [quietly?] ordered me around & took possession of me. First I was introduced to all the Century people – [with?] New York. June [14.13?] Dear Louie, I was suddenly interrupted by a whole lot of new people visits dinners champagne etc & have just got back to New York by a night boat by way of Fall River – so I begin again Perhaps this is the 15th [13?] Tuesday for I lose all track of time [their?] friends also as they came in.
