Letter from J. B. Henry to Mary Hagner Nicholson commenting on the “fairy” setting around him; after taking a nap he and his friend jumped into the water to simulate falling from a capsized boat and later that day his sail boat capsized, giving him a second dunking with a resulting cold and sore throat; comments on the artists’ colony and the Thieriot family of New Jersey; Mr. Brewster and Dr. Porter are getting along very well; compares unfavorably the British celebration to the success of the transatlantic cable to the one held in New York; pleads for more letters from her. Envelope from Bolton, NY September 1 with stamp addressed to Miss Mary H. Nicholson, Care Col. Nicholson, Annapolis, Maryland. In another hand: October 1st, My treasure. Bolton, Lake George, NY.
