Text

My dearest

I spent all the forenoon discussing questions and individuals before the Board.

The President is about and in good condition again. This afternoon he, Miss E. and I went for a fifty mile motor ride down in the direction of La Plata, Maryland. He wanted to go to the Theater to-night but I persuaded him that it was much too hot and might make him sick.

I dined with Ned & Mrs. McLean and enjoyed the evening. She seems truly very fond and admires you greatly. Her sorrow has produced numerous grey hairs in her head.

The weather here is terribly hot—but I am getting along allright. I sincerely hope it is pleasant at Shippan Point, I wish that I was there. I continue to miss you dreadfully. That visit was much too short. I love you and those two darling little fellows with all my heart.
