Dear Papa,

We are here at Mrs Pawlicki's, and are having a delightful time, we are both well, and though Mama is tired, she feels no worse for the trip. Yesterday afternoon we went to ride in the park with Wanda and Captain [Rielawski?] and had a lovely time, I went to Mrs Walker's last night where Wanda has been staying with her friend.


Mr and Mrs Walker are very pleasant old S[illegible] people, and I had a nice time. How is Stickeen? And how are you getting along? Mama is going to Dr. [Parkan's?] now, so I am in a hurry, and must say good bye, and that we are coming home on the Santa Fe Tuesday evening. We must go now so good bye,

your loving little girl
