Excerpt from Message

Dear Aunt Celeste, Just a little note-to let you know that we arrived safely- It’s terribly hot and humid here and we don’t have much energy for anything, + guess we’ll get used to it! We are moving today in our little “paddy house” – I’ll write a long letter when we are finally settled. Love from us all Nicky
