Newport, Friday
My dear Father,
I have yours of
Wednesday. The arrangements for the
Chicago journey seem to me very good.
But I would not advise adding the
Diplomats, which I think might lead
to complications and difficulties, the
burden of which would be thrown upon
you.
Our storm has cleared away,

and we have been improving the
pleasant weather by outdoor exercise:
walking and riding.
The Surgeon General
Birth: 1817-07-21 Death: 1883-04-05
has answered
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
, and confirms my impression
that the bleeding was a favorable
rather than unfavorable symptom. The
wound looks to me better than it has
for months. Both Anna & I have
gained strength, I am sure, and
it is evidenced by our ability to
eat, sleep, walk &c. I wish you
could have a season of rest and
quiet relaxation instead of that tedious
