[FB002AAE] Letter, c. 1888

Editor's Notes

[Bradford Academy] How can I begin to tell you what a perfectly grand time I have been having in Lowell! I went to the theater four times and to a talk and to hear the Harvard Glee Club, a young gentleman took us for a ride his sister went as chaparone, we went to a lake and crossed that lake in a row boat and gathered wild flowers on the opposite side, he is a Mr. Green who is at the "Divinity School" at Yale College. I think I made a conquest as he called ? Time a sent me a beautiful bouquet the night of the ball. We went into Boston twice to the Theatre and dined at the Parker House, Mrs. Kelly is simply lovly and seemed to take such a liking to me, she went to so far as to invite me to come in June right after "commencement" and spend a few days at the "Pond of Pines which is near Boston have you any objections to my going, I met lots of lovly people who tried their best to spoil me and as"Lucille" ? Says "Sometimes I am startled at my very success" do not dear Mama condemn me for these little follies as it is only lately I have learnt to tell you such frivolous ? In fear of your condemnation. Mrs. Kelly is also a step-mother and gave me some very sound advice as to little every day things. I saw a great deal between Mary and she has proved to me that if ever we have had a little trouble at home I have I fear been doubtless many times in the wrong. I saw Mrs. Spaulding but not her daughter their house is lovly and I was sorry Mrs. Kelly did not know her well enough to call upon her as I should liked to have met her. School let in Tuesday and I did not come back until Friday and Mrs. Johnson just kectured me about two hours, I should have felt different about staying if I should not make up my lessons but as I am going to I felt perfectly comfortable in staying so I did. I had my picture taken and I will send you one if they come soon enough. I sent (Marcus?) Bradley a little knitted under-vest before I went away. Give my love to all and accept lots for yourself. Goodbye M.E.E P.S. Money box ok, and am much obliged
