[handwritten from divider to left edge] My Dear Mrs. Pontius & Catherine- Glad to hear from you. How do you like Boston and her straight (?) streets. We had two real warm days but now have our usual cool & lovely weather. Have 2 young ladies from Seattle in #11. and had John in that one day and he kept looking around. I really thought he was looking for Catherine. Will be pleased to hear from you any time. Best regards Mrs. J. Bluth [at bottom of address panel] Beal Hall.
