Camp life must be very fascinating in such beautiful surroundings. I am sure you are happy to be home. We are looking for mabels house tonight. Just think we've not seen her for 18 months! We will not sleep for a [?]!! She enjoyed your visit so much in N. Y. I think I shall retire with Mabel in the fall and I hope to see you there. We are planning a big time when Mabel comes. Are you doing much fishing? June 29th Emily [?] [sic]
