At last I have found a few moments to spend in writing to you.

After I left you I went to B and went to the dentists and sat with my mouth stretched from ear to ear for a couple of hours.

I found the Reindeer was over on an excursion, so was able to reach my sisters the same day.

Among the first I met as I went aboard the boat was a gentleman friend from Grand Isle so I had a very pleasant ride home.

I intended to write to you the Sunday after I left you but Sat. night my sister and I watched with a sick friend and Sunday morning I went to call on a sick friend and went to church and there found two gentlemen friends from S. Hero who wished me to go home with, so I did so and my [chums] seeing me through the [window] stoped and made me go to afternoon meeting and Sunday evening of course I must go, so the day passed and I did not write and since, I have not had time. A company of us talked of going camping last week but it was given up as three couple were

going to Saratoga to the [Y.P.C.E.] Convention. They started this morning. My cousin Anna and I came over here with them We came over in a sail boat. The wind was blowing a perfect gale and I was so sick. As there were several in the boat a young gentleman and I were obliged to sit in the same place when sick and we just had to fly around First I was sick and he had to give me his seat then when I got better he had to have it then I was sick again, o dear it was awful. My cousin and I are now waiting at the dock for the wind to go down so that we can go back to the Island

I suppose you are teaching now I wish I were, but I suppose the Lord knows what is best for us all.
