July 13th

Dear Wanda

The Merriams have been here off an on for several weeks, and they go away for a camping trip to McCloud River on Wednesday 8 P.M. July 15th. I have been wondering whether you and Helen would not like to come to our house for lunch or dinner. or both on Wednesday to see the Merriams I would also enjoy very much if you and your sister would tramp with me on next Sunday, July 19th.


Come on Saturday and stay all night Saturday and Sunday. We will visit the redwoods. please go. If you both together cant leave home, I wish one of you would come.
It is so long since I heard from you that it seems as if we live in different worlds.
How was your trip to Lake Eleanor and what does your Father write and is your Mother well again? I hope she will visit us soon. We have now a room down stairs where she could stay without climbing any stairs.

Your sincere friend

Catherine H. Hittell
