Friday night April 19th 1907
Dear Aunt Anne
All my joyous bells are ringing with with the consciousness that I am to take the Sunday night train, after the final Amen has been sung, for Boston and and to have a few hours at least with you.
I am coming along with Philippi, our choirmaster, to inspect and pass upon the new organ which the Hutchings Votey company are building for us. A representative of the company will meet us in the morning, take us to breakfast and then over to Cambridge to see the organ, but I shall stop to see you on the way.
I expected to stay by Philippi at his hotel but Mary has written asking me to come and take the other single bed in her guest room and if Philippi will let me off I will do so. Philippi wants to come and see you if you will let him, Our church treasurer, Mr. Converse, has given me a genealogical tree to give to Miss Converse which I shall bring
lovingly George S.
