We are 300 miles from home. We started from home after 30 [3:00?] a.m. Fri and traveled all P.m. and all night and got here at 4:30 this morning. Of course we had a little ear trouble. This P.M. I was to River Falls and to-morrow we are going on a picnic to St. Croix Falls. Then the latter part of the week we are going to Cumberland and then back home again. I hope that there will be a letter waiting for me from you when I get home. XX."
