Dear friend--Only a few lines to let you know our stay over here is soon coming to a close. We leave for the city October 2nd We had a nice time, however we had our discomfort with the hot weather which has been very warm over here and the miserable mosquitoes. Driving along the beach was one of our principal enjoyments every eve. Bathing is fine. We enjoyed two trips with Auto to Biloxi and a few too Gulfport. Hoping you are well also Nettie is feeling better With love from yours sincerly Marg [sic]
