Dear Folks,

This is one of the most beautiful lakes. We are still with the girls on Hwy 31 – Guess we won’t get much further, as I don’t feel too good. It is really beautiful here, only 32 miles from Traverse City and about 12 miles to jack and Millie’s camp. They took us on a lovely drive today, Arcada, Elberta, Frankfort, Portage Lake – over to Lake Michigan. you would like it very much here. Hope everyone is fine.

Love Lillian

Dear All, 

The weather seems to be warming up today. Just came back from a boat ride and soon will be taking the boys for a hike. This is where we had dinner last night; the fish dinner was so good. Everything is fine.

Dear Mother,

Here is where we are in Northern Michigan. Swell fishing and swell weather. Hope you had a nice vacation, going home on Friday. Will write to you then.

Wish you were down here because there are a lot of elderberries on the hill. I have a joke about Frank on the worms that I will tell you about when we get home. I have to laugh everytime I think of them.
