Dear Mother,

I was just on my way up to the room to write, when I discovered this se-cluded desk. It's the only one in the hotel not taken.

I got 4 shirts + 1 waist from F. + Simon.



Mr. Hall + Mr Lawrence [leave Monday]

If you will join us in such a [trip], [I might] be easily pursuaded to go to [Ashville] or Hotsprings [Va] later on for ample weeks. Think it over. We will [have] had enough by next Saturday. We took it easy today; played [9] holes with one club this morning and this afternoon we [were] part of the "biggest" gallery that [ever] followed a golf game. Four stars played [- little old]. Fan was all eyes. She isn't missing much. I [have] not

[encouraging] horesebacking [times] etc for I know it would but add to the exertion and [exercise] of which we both have enough [more than enuf,]

Love and kisses and all sorts of best wishes from
