Exploring the Evergreen State, Part IX
Am leaving soon. That's all.

From the Olympic Peninsula, we really only have one more new leg on our tour of Washington, so we will cross over Deception Pass to visit Bellingham and the Skagit River country.

Dear Aunt:

Arrived O.K.  Met by Count.  Say "hello" to Tuppence.  Am leaving soon.  That's all.

Love, Betty

Dear Sarah and Walden,

It was sure a beautiful day we all had last Monday -- Laura was benefited by such a pleasant outing and Oscar made happy.  Peg got home Thurs. P.M. and soon will be back in the school room.

Thanks for the delicious lunch and pleasant time.

Love, Ethel

Hello Nellie -- We have had sunshine every day.  Clammed one day & got a diaper pail full of clams.  They were yummy.  Will be home after 21st I think.  Hello to Mrs. Derloc.

Love, Susanne & Ralph

This is one view of Bellingham.  The college would be off to the upper right.  It sits on the top of a very steep hill looking down on the city and the bay.

That first one seems like some sort of secret code.
