[fragment of letter, but seems to fit in this sequence]
… you will take. And another thing, I have been casting about me to find out the best way to do -- & have concluded that in the uncertainty as to weather, it will be better for us three women to leave New York on Friday 13”, by the 12.15 train via New Haven, New London &c &c to Providence, which I find arrives there about 7.33. Then, having arranged beforehand for rooms, sleep at the City Hotel, & go out to Newport the next day. This I shall do—unless I get a word from you telling me something & someway very much better & more practicable. Then, the Riggs, would have to be prepared for us on the 14th. Dear, your little book is a perpetual joy to us, some one of us picks it up every morning when we come down & read one or two of the lovely things we find in it, & then we talk it over, at breakfast & it leads us off into other lovely ways, & so makes a sort of test for our discourse. Thanks, dear, for the “Librial Christian” I shall desire to hear [Mr Wale?] if only for this glimpse you have from me of him – Emma S sends kind love to you. Believe Me Ever, your faithfully affectionate C.C.
