Dear Mamma,

     I have arrived here safely, and am delighted with the place. I got here just in time to go in bathing with the rest. Cousin Mary lent me her bathing suit as she was not going in. I stayed in just long enough to get real wet. It is lots of fun to bathe in the surf.
     Will met me at Seagirt; He did not seem to have any difficulty in recognizing me. They have a very nice little cottage.
     Cousin Florence, Cousin Mary, Cousin Margaret, Mrs Kingkade and Will send lots of love.      With love for everybody I am,

Your loving daughter

Margaret.
