Olive's Letter
My dear Aunty
I hope for time – more time
to write you a good long letter - but so far Hattie
Birth: 1850-03-05 Death: 1925-07-27

has been obliged to write all my letters to my father
Birth: 1814 Death: 1893

Mr. Seward
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
is very well, as you see – He could
have written better but for the motion of
the boat – He constantly takes notes of the
journey and that consumes all the time I have
Page 2

I need not say how happy we were to hear
of your good health – We have travelled
19,672 miles already, and it is rather hard
work – as instructive and interesting as it is –
I can hardly wait for the time to come that
will bring me again to my own country –
We hope for letters at or Madras
We have not heard a word from home since
we arrived in Asia – I never imagined
that I could learn as much as I have
during this journey – I am in the most beau-
tiful spot on earth - //A perfect garden &
the passage through the Indian Ocean
is a dream of tranquility – Give my
love to all the friends and believe me
Yours alway – Olive –
