July 6, 1926
We did not like Eastport at all. It has very little of the character of a New England coast town, so we left after three days and went to Bangor by rail and then by boat to this town, a very fine old place with lots of good looking houses, but not much shipping.
I don't know how long we will stay here. Have been thinking of going out to Matinicus Island. I've made two sketches here within two days, which is not so bad.
We don't know when we will be down (up) your way, but probably not until later in the summer. "My best pal and severest critic" sends her best regards and I do also.
