Stationery from the Hotel Dixon, Fort Pierce, Florida
June 17, 1930
Greetings from all of us! The mosquitoes are not so numerous since the anti-mosquito work was undertaken. We called on Mr. Fee tonight, but will have more time with him tomorrow. The sand flies seem to be holding their own but are not annoying when there is a breeze. We go to Cocoa for tomorrow night, then Mr. McNiel will meet us and take us to his sub-station at Orlando. From there we take a train to Jax. Will visit St. Mary’s north of Jax, then Savannah, then Charleston. We may call at Myrtle Beach which is between Charleston and Wilmington. This general survey is getting pretty tiresome. We are getting some general information but it is not giving much in the way of leads. They have different notions about the breeding places. I’ll be glad when we get to Savannah and Charleston and can make some arrangements about beginning the work. I was surprised that Bish stayed with me so much for a general survey.
I certainly hope that you are getting along OK and that Walter White is on good behavior. It seems a mighty long time since I saw you. I love you, Dear, Walter White too, and I am anxious to see you.
Mr. Reed of the Fla. State Board of Health is driving his Ford Coupe for the 3 of us. Quite crowded but we make stops frequently. Will be looking for a letter “General Delivery” Charleston. Should you find it necessary to wire me, send care City Health Officer Savannah or Charleston.
