My dear Papa

I suppose that you will have crosted the bounding billows by the time this letter reaches you. I hope that there has been no storms while you are on the watter and that you bill be well. We are all very well here but grandma she has been real sick and has been in bed several days but she is a little better to day.

Helen is very well and she is getting heavy she weighs 48 pounds now. I hope that Mr John Burrows will go with you to Scotland as I think it would be much pleasanter than for you to go alone. How is Mr. and Mrs Keith and where does she expect to stop while you and Mr Keith are climbing mountains? You must have had a fine time on the Hudson river I wish I had been along We have taken Elfie in to our room at night and she approves greatly and so do I she sleeps in a box in the fire place

The cherries are very nearly gone we have had some nice ones. have you had any good ones where you have been? The boat and tuskes and things were sent Mr. Coleman took them down on the boat and saw that they got there all right. We had three very warm days where the thomnometer went up to 98 but since then it has been very cool but the mosketos have been very bad sometimes. Papa, now take good care of your self and dont go in any dangerous places With love and kisses from us all I close.
