Camp Colby July 5Dear MamaWe are spending the day in camp for the first time since we reached here, that is this is the first whole day we have stayed in camp, for there has been so much to see & so many places to go. I have just finished lunch, it consisted of ten biscuits, seven pickles (small) a big plate full of stewed dried apples, some flour & bacon [grease?] gravy & a big dipper full of strong tea without sugar (sugar has given out) & am still living & feeling as happy and healthy as a mountaineer should & so is Helen although she also ate a lot of ham besides all the things I did. This morning was spent in washing clothes & visiting around camp & now I am lying on a bank of pine needles under a big yelow pine writing this letter. How I wish that you could be here for it is a fine place to rest & be lazy in as well as to walk in.08552
