[letterhead]02108New YorkJune 19, 1896My own dear HelenOh Midge I'm awfully solemnly lonely & homesick to see you. It seems more than a year since I left home, so rumbled & tumbled was the time on the railroad & so hot & chokey & smoky & dusty, & then besides there was so much bumping & noise all night I couldnt sleep. But I had a good rest last night & feel better this morning. & I hope to hear that mother continues to get better & that you & Wanda & Mama & grandma are wellThe Harvard solemnities
