Mrs. John Fletcher

Bandon Plantation

Edenton, North Carolina

Dear Mrs. Fletcher:

I was sorry you and John were not at the Masonic meeting in Edenton the other night. I missed you.

The name of the costumer who furnished our costumes is Van Horn & Son, Costumer, Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pa.

Again we thank you for helping make our pageant a success and I got a big kick out of Bill Sharpe's article about you saying "What the bell needs is a Bath".

I was interested in the picture of Bandon that you sent. I suppose the reason the blind was not open over the porch was that John was taking a nap.
