1973 Catherine's Moose postcard Sept. 11
Hi!  We've rented a cabin at Tomhegan Point on the west side of Moosehead Lake.  It's been windy & chilly but still very nice.  If it calms down we hope to get a boat for the day later this week.  Got a letter from the Ballantyne's wanting to know when you will be here again.  So far with your anniv. $ I bought 3 wastebaskets for $1.97 - the dust ruffle looks good on the bed & those kulattes (?) [culottes is correct spelling] fit well.  Love, X&C
[added at top] We saw 2 moose Sat. evening.  Kuman is doing well in the wild.
