Dear Darrows:?

     We are able to put on pomp at this place at a third-rate charge?meantime the managements all along the rim seem willing to take almost anything above nothing while awaiting the so-called (short) "season"?tho' Clarence would groan at my estimate of the price-per-day charged us, at that.  Ah well,?while he is not quite ill, neither is he quite well,?and Paul and I have agreed that whatever there is of C-D-'s life-savings shall be used by him for the preservation and prolonging of his well-being, if possible,?short of risk and recklessness with it, that might bring us to the point of renewal of drudgery for him again:?and the sea air, and salt and sunny water and daytime are said to be, and seem to be elixer for his particular brand of declining health; so, here we are, by way of escaping whatever worse weather may prevail in "the states" in mid-winter.  We hope that the Wall Street upheaval has not put too tight a figure-eight into your affairs; C--'s possessions seem on the safe side, so far; tho' considerably lessened in values, in spots, the income to be used is not expected to be greatly changed, I hear.  Do write %Am.Ex.Co; letters "from home" do much toward warding off the lonesomeness that I suspect creeps over HIM at times, tho' I never indicate its existence by any look or word, and declare that i prefer to prolong rather than abbreviate the absence, even at this date so far past June 4-th !  But how very long it does seem since our departure; and just when are we to be on the way back?
