Octo. 18, 1883.


Your letter recd. The girls are with us yet and propose to return tomorrow/Friday. They visited Ausable Chasm, yesterday, weather not permitting sooner, and had a splendid perfect time, and were enchanted more of which satisfaction, they will relate to you themselves.

You mention Jessie's picture, why not Manahatta's, nothing short of the twain, will satisfy me. I am delighted with both, and have been cheered immensely by their visit: lovely good girls, contrasts in complexion yet harmoniously uniting. Han is pretty well, and much gratified with your letter.

CL Heyde.
