Miss Whitney

Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard, Mass.

July 19, 1914

Dear Miss Whitney:

How I do wish that I could accept your kind invitation to come and see you, and to hear Mrs. Dargan's letter read! But I am moored on this island off in the ocean, ever so many miles from anywhere,

and am trying to get rested up from a year's work which left me almost worn out. Already I am doing [deletion: bettr] better. One of my friends says that I used to eat like a bird and now eat like a Christian; but I am not strong enough yet to attempt any

traveling that can be helped.

Don't try to write me even a line, if it brings on the pain; but ask your cousin to drop me a card now and then to tell me how you are.

Yours always affectionately, Alice Stone Blackwell.

Letter from Alice Stone Blackwell, Chilmark, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1914 July 19
