CAMPBELL COUSINS CORRESPONDENCE
5422 South Pine St.
South Tacoma, Washington,
September 20th, 1923.
Greetings from the North.
The second Cousins' letter
finds us still on the Pacific Coast nicely situated in our
comfortable home in one of the beautiful cities in the State
of Washington,‑ Tacoma surrounded on the North and West by
Puget Sound, South and East by sparkling fresh water lakes and
background of mountains, -Olympics on the North and Cascades
on East and Mount Tacoma, nearly 15,000 feet high, looming out
of the sky and when clear looks as though one could walk to
its base in one hour;-still it is sixty miles away.
Brother Charlie and our family had the pleasure this summer of taking a trip with auto to this Mountain which was called God,‑ to the snow line 9,000 feet high, where we had our photos taken among the beautiful wild flowers. The view from where we were was indescribably grand,‑ rivers flowing from the mountain's side and glaciers of ice working their way down. I think Brother Charlie can describe our trip better than I. We started early in the morning and returned 8 P.M. We had a grand trip. I hope Brother will be with you at the Cousins' dinner.
This being our second letter for Cousins' Correspondence Book, I want to tell you all what pleasure and joy it was to myself and dear wife to read and re‑read your first letters and we are looking forward to the second letters which will soon be due, and this will be another bright spot in our lives.
We have had a beautiful summer,‑ the weather has been perfect arid our families have had many pleasant auto trips to the lakes, parks, mountains and nearby cities. Although I do not think this the only beautiful country, there is no valley more beautiful than the old Cowanesque where we all received our first impressions of this great world God has given us to live in, and how happy every one would be if we would follow the teachings of the Master who said, "My peace I give unto you, but not as the world gives."
We have been greatly blessed in having our children settle near us‑‑ just now one of our family is absent,- Leroy's wife, Helen, who is visiting in the East. We think lots of her and miss her very much. Elizabeth is with us while Helen is away and Edgar is with Lee. We have written her to attend the Cousins' Dinner if she possibly can. She expects to visit Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York before she returns. I am sure you will like her,‑ she is
