    Dear Miss Bragg, 38 Chalmers St. July 21, 1928 We came "home" by train and stopped at Atlanta for five hours and reached "the old city by the sea" on the eighteenth. We begin to breathe the friendly atmosphere again. At present we temporarily will stay in "the pink house" and next Monday we are going to remove to Snug Harbor where to spend the rest of the summer. In september I might come to New York to see some friends who are coming to this country very soon. We have seen Miss Richardson and Mrs. House yesterday. [2] Mrs. Miller is much better now and we had a good time over there. We plan to spend this afternoon on the Folly Beach and have a little ocean breeze. We are going to see Lieutenant Wells and Mr. Bennett to-morrow. The payment for the car is all right now and on August the first the car will be entirely ours. we have spent the whole yesterday morning in oiling and varnishing the car. It runs perfectly good as a new car. I hope we don't meet any trouble for the rest of the summer. We have also spent some time in the garden. It looks pretty nice. we intend to plant some more flowers in it if we can et enough [3] room for them. Mr. An said that he is no longer a sphinx, but has turned out to be a "talking machine." He also wants to be a laughing Buddha and takes Mr. Tu's place, because he de-cides to put a genuine smile always on his face. Beware: He intends, when you come back, to surprise you with his eloquence just as he impressed you before with his silence. I don't have any ambitions for the summer. I just want to read some books. I have picked out Mr. Oswald's "The Decline of the West," some books about Art and some about Buddhism. Besides I might do some translation works. [4] How to you feel now? I hope I can learn that you have already recovered. Mrs. Miller said that you have the spirit; you have the will power; and therefore you can recover very soon. I have received your two checks all right, but I am very sorry I have forgotten to mention it. You want me to send a message to Miss Lin. It is perfectly all right and I am very willing to do that. Truly yours, I-Men [5] [From] C.C.Tseng 38 Chalmers St, Charleston, S.C. [Addressed] Miss Laura M. Bragg, Apartment 82, 526 W. 113th St. New York city.
