Early in the morning
we shall say adieu
(The French say that instead
of good bye) to Paris, and
stay one night at Choerburg Cherbourg
where we take the steamer
on the 18th of August. Then
a bee line for home. It is
a line almost 4000 miles long.
Since leaving home I will then
have traveled a little more
than 12,000 miles. Think of it—
no, you can't, it is hardly
thinkable for a thirteen—
year old. I have seen a vast
deal of country, millions of
houses, some great high mountains,
and people, too many to guess at
the number of. But I have not
seen any women I would trade your
Mamma for, nor any boys I would
take in an even swap for Warren & Joe.
