12. Boulevard des Capucines
Paris, le_________190
[[/printed letterhead]]
I have been with[[insertion]]out[[/insertion]] the company of either Jerome or Coleman, since the morning of my landing in Naples, nearly two months ago, and I miss them very much.
The trip to Spain too, has come and gone, and with it certain ideals have vanished and certain others shall be with me always. I am glad to have had the experience.
Paris changes little; the rush and roar of the exposition of 1900 is gone and about all that remains [[insertion]]of it[[/insertion]] in tangible form, is the lovely bridge and the two art galleries. Higher and more [[insertion]]important[[/insertion]] results, I trust and hope, are scattered throughout the universe.
The streets however, seem to be nearly as crowded as in 1900. Americans everywhere. I am to dine with Jeanne and her husband tonight, and already several other pleasing invitations have reached me for luncheons, dinners and private collections for the balance of the week. so I am scarcely ready to determine the time of my departure for London.
