My Beloved Angee,
I expect to reach New York on Saturday and as you already know to leave there by the Teutonic on Wednesday June 1. Am heartily glad to get away from this for the present – am glad you have had such a nice time at Ilfracombe with dear Martha. Was glad to receive your letters of the 13th also one from Emma & Margie. I am expecting to get a telegram from Paris this morning to know if Mrs Foreman is at home, if she is I intend to run down as it is not far from here. The Lord grant all needed mercies in the voyage so that we might soon have the joy of seeing each other's faces once more – much love to you and all our dear ones and believe me my beloved Angee.
Being very affectionate Husband
