Transcription"Dear Mr. [illegible], Many thanks for the cigars & candy. We ate & smoked. Thought of Darien. We like it here very much indeed, better every day. This view will give you some idea of the town. This of course is not one half of the business section but you can see something of the main street. I have put a cross where the N.P. depot is. We have two of [them The Great]--message ends.
