Dear Mother:

Wouldn't I have kicked myself if I had staid here on acct of the lab work! The "alloy" wasn't an alloy. It was a bluff, + there was only the one metal I found.

I am awfully busy, as was to be expected.

Had a delightfully cool trip and enjoyed the ferry ride. Passed the [Aguitauia] close range. Thrills!

Enjoyed [Father's] company. We had a great dinner [on diner]. He feels loads better. Isn't that funny? He rode out to college with me. Take care of yourself. Lots of love,
