Monday (no date), Pelham Priory; postmarked September 1 at New Rochelle, New York. Mary Chrystie again writes to her mother Frances Chrystie about her flea problem and notes that her "poison" is almost gone and "does not trouble me at all now, and only looks very ugly". Mary complains that her music teacher "is so hatefully cross that I tremble when she calls me to take my lesson" and mentions that her throat is "pretty well" but that she "wheeze[s] when the weather is at all damp".
