With Mrs. Hft^ley and Oscar, jr., at thilr summer camp in Massachusetts. Camp 0' Pines, Rockport. Mass. July, 31, 1983 Dear Tom:.. Just before commencement last June I was hurrying down Main street when .a farmerish-looking man stepped out of a cigar store and hailed me saying: "Well, professor, l hope you -will report on your summer actlYities thru -.the Times-tribune as usual because I kind o' Jike to keep track of what my Help IB doing in their off time." So this Is a. report to one of my employers whose name I did not g«t but richo, t .am -sure, will be gratified to learri my whereabouts, etc. . . Well, we arrived here on this desert island the 17tb of June after an uneventful, trip of five days at a cost of $83.50 for gas. oil, food and shelter.' Pmtjf good, f think.

It was pleasant because i didn't lose my temper, the other fellow didn't lose Ms temper, the Insurance agent for his car didn't lose his temper and agreed that his customer was to blame; it cost only 1.75 for repairs, and we were on our way in a couple of hours. The Insurance agent figured, pur loss at $13.27 and we found a check for that amount from the company awaiting us on our ariv- al. Good company— Camp in Bad Shape Arriving here we found tho Camp in rather bad shape owing to the lact that some pirates (or something) had been using it as a hide- the winter arid had. nol been too careful of the furniture and dishes. They had cut down a couple of pines' in the front ySad for fire-wood afld ha" split up the dinning room table for kindling. The whole place was a mess with you hook a fine mackeral for supper. If you aren't lucky you row dewn to the wart and buy one for a nickel. And I learned a new way to get fish the other day. I was down on the wharf and saw a man coming towards me carrying a fine big two-or-three-potind fish by the "Ah, "I commented, "that's a handsome fish. Just catch It?" tie was and old rrian — seventy- five or eighty, I should say— and he drawled ""his answer. "No," slowly, "it don't pay to fish any more; you can git 'em so cheap." "Yes, they are pretty cheap," I anfiwered. "I can always get a bne-pound mackeral for a nickel." "Mofe'n I pay," he answered. "What!" I exciaimtd greatly astonished. "Do you mean to say you paid less .than a nickel for that tish." ;.."That's right." . "How much?" "Nothing." "What! Not a cent?" "Not a cent. You jest get up early and be down on the: wharf when the trapp boat ; (the boat that .goes but" ' to" : ''empty- the fish traps) comes in -and they'll gvv; you one —that, is," he' continued after" a short pause, "if you look kind o' hungry Hke." "Oh." I felt quite let down "And is that a pretty good fish*" "Well,-it hungry it's -depends. If you are awful good. If you (Continued from Pags ing over the warehouse district.

So I began putting in some pretty hefty licks getting the place livable again and it is for that reason I have delayed reporting before—hard work and lots of it. You see although we have been here seven weeks we have had but .only a couple of days when you could go without an overcoat and no night when you could sleep under less than four heavy woolen blankets and keep warm. Night and morning, and frequently all day long, we have been obliged to keep "piling the four-foot logs into the fireplace to keep the living room comfortable and it takes a lot of backbreaking toil to keep that, much wood on hand—and that, too, in the middle of a forest so thick you can not see ore than 200 feet from the cabin unless you look straight ur. And, looking straight up 200 feet the other day at noon we were surprised to see a lot of enormous airplanes flying with a tremendous roar straight out towards the ocean.

Well, we go over to the Inn where thers is a splendid trio of young and gobd-loojdng , girts. Shortly after we' came itl the first night I noticed during an intermission that 1 ".they Were hurriedly rummaging thru their stack of music anfl then the next number on the program was the Brahms trio in B major.' That was a pretty stiff dose but they'haiid!- ed it bekutlfnlly and afterwards I went up to congratulate them. But, I had hardly started my speech when they burst out, altogether: "Oh, thank you. Professor, we thought you would Hke that," "Professor!" I exclaimed, trying to register extreme astonishment, "Aren't you romateing a .little?" "Oh no," answered the p'ianist. "Mr. Nolte, the manager of the hotel, came down, and told us when you came in," (We had .visited some fiends at the* hottl that afternoon,"and probably that is how Mr. NOlte came to know us.) "And so continued the Vidlin- isty, "you see we know all about you because we take and read the Musical Courier. Ha, ha! ha. Sat iall three joined in.
