My dear Calvin,
When your letter came I was just on the point of writing you to say that Hilda and Edna were coming on Tuesday, but now they will wait till Wednesday. I thought it would be better for me to come a few days later, as it would be easier for me to get things in order, pay my bills at first of month and get a little rested before I start. Have really not recovered the meetings yet, and I feel quite ashamed to be always arriving at your house in a dilapidated condition. But I am beginning to pick up and am looking forward to a fine rest with you and think the change of air ought to do me great good.
We had thought of Wednesday and then H. said it would be your prayer-meeting, Monday would be awkward, for it would be bad for the packing. It is better for all not to come together, in case any thing is forgotten.
We have just been out getting an electric light for the table, which will I think make things look very cheerful, also the blind a good deal cheaper here. H. had hoped she would be there for the pic-nic, but if they did manage to go on Monday, E. would be too tired to go. I am glad to think of having a girl. Young girls can be made very helpful. Must take a rest now. With fondest love.
