A good living history presenter always stays in character, sort of:
Ahem. Dear Readers, I've been told that through using this strange typewriter made of an unusual material, I may transmit my words to the world. I do find that claim to be quite fantastical, but nevertheless, I am always eager to try a new amusement.
Life at Sand Island Lighthouse is enjoyable, but I do so appreciate a holiday now and again. I will be traveling to visit the Aerial Transfer Bridge and Keeper Lederle's family in Duluth this weekend: the steamer leaves tomorrow. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to visit the shops, as well: I'll finally get to see the new hat fashions for 1912. The trip is a bit of a lark, but my husband (the keeper) wishes me to enjoy the brief summer while the ships may still find passage. It is important to him that I enjoy this life and always come back!
I will be taking his hat to the men's milliner for a repair. It is dashing uniform hat, don't you think? He's just hoping no inspector visits the station while I am away with his hat!
If you will be in Duluth this weekend, perhaps we shall see each other near the Canal? I will be bravely facing the gondola ride across with clenched hands and would welcome the company! With best wishes for your health,
