Mailed from Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania to Mr. Dan L. Mohnkern of Oil City, Pennsylvania on August 26, 1952:

Dear Dan,
Having a swell time. We are staying at the Lakeside, and the food is wonderful.
The swimming is good but the water is quite chilly. There are many sail boats here, and one which we would like to ride.
I’m quite red now and hope to get as brown as a berry.
We’ve met many fine folks here, and the music and play programs are good. Will see you before too long. Sincerely, Chet.
