Tuesday afternoon Dear Boozie - I've just gotten Lisee off to a fish fry - now I can write a little. She's a sweet kid, but I don't know what to think about her and Bill - she's doing her best to marry him this fall - she won't listen to reason. I didn't take her seriously, but she's crazy enough to do it. Tomorrow we're going to St. Simon's to see about getting a cottage for a week. That's a good way to make a week fly by. What are you doing today? No mail, of course, and did I miss your letter today! Have you decided about going to Lancaster this week-end? Don't go if you don't particularly want to - you may feel a little hesitant about it because you've never seen them, and they're a little different from us. I know you'd get along alright, though. They wouldn't bother about you, but would be awfully glad to have you. And I think you'd get plenty of pie to eat!
