it inwardly all the time. [Jeans?] Bird book interests him so much and I study it with him all the time - we are making a collection of nests - we have four but most of the birds still have use for theirs. We want a barn swallows, but it is too high for me though time was -

Please burn this up - it is worse than no letter at all. I shall wait for the mail before closing. No letter from thee; one from Marie however which I will keep until thee gets here. She wants to know if I know a Richard A. MacCurdy, [Nassau?], Cudor & Liberty Street, [N.Y.?] Father thinks he is Pres. of the Mutual Life Insurance Co. of New York - will thee find out if he is right - Father says there is a Branch of this on Union Sq. [near?] [Tiffany?]. Love, Margie

Be sure and write what train thee and Sister are coming on Thursday.

Norwood, June 25th, 1900 My dearest, I can scarcely realize that this week will bring us togetherblessed week- I cannot tell thee how hungry I am to see thee. I suppose thee is busy doing up loose ends before leaving - Father paid something to Dr. [Elery?] yester day about the portrait, and he learned to accept it as a foregone conclusion that thee was going to do it in August. I cant help feeling that Bea Tyson had something to do with our losing the [namer?] portraits though Father says it is impossible, but you never can tell what "snakes in the grass" will do, and she is that type. There is a great deal of talk about her encouragment to Sam Rumford

Ms. Moore wants thee to bring some [bananas?] down for [Jean?] - they [agree?] with him so well, and are hard to get up here. She is in [?] condition - but I shall have to give up the [nap?] after [dinner?] which was such a rest to me as well as to him; but he [wont?] get to sleep at night [until?] after nine, - wakes the next morning as [?] as his [sticks?]. I have a treat for us in reading - [Concie Harvy?] lent me some of the [Roycroft?] [?]. Lets "journey to the homes of [Hamon?] Men" by [Elfred Hubbard?]. I have read one or two of them and they are most delighful in matter.
