1888 Letter to Clara

Bellingham has the best hotel and will be most convenient for me as I shall have business both at Fairhaven and Whatcom.  It is only a few miles from Fairhaven to Whatcom.  I'll write you from ....... I love you my dear heart more than ever before.  And it is about as hard to leave you as for you to stay.  Yours faithfully, Jack
Towns on Bellingham Bay:  Whatcom Sehome, Bellingham, and Fairhaven.
