[Page 3] your two books and think I well to exchange copies of Burns with you. It is such a delightful one – this you have chosen for me – with the picture of Helen included -we are hoping you will come soon yourself. You can always take refuge from the whirls of New York at Arden where nature reigns supreme still and very lovely nature, now in the Autumn robes of marvelous colors. The Pelican Bay [ ] and the water, of which you may remember “we drank copiously” still show their good effects on the Harriman family and the memories of our pleasant intercourse with you [ ] will always linger and cheer and gladden us. Very faithfully gratefully yours Mary W. Harriman

Please let us hear some again how life goes with you . Yours Mrs H
