Description I see an infinity of people&hope soon io write you some few things about g& maiters here, of their peculiar modes of thought, & habits of life-not u-1 am "bothered" this week-& feel very unlike writingl Alfred is well. All is quiet here. All things seem to have settled down into a routine C nothing happens to tell of. I se? the New York Times oi 25th June, has a most "inter- esting" accouni of Alfred & his doings.

My mother and sisters are very well. My brother is travel-
