Copy of letter written by W.M. Mitchell.
Beddeck, N. S., October 9, 1903.
Professor A. Melville Bell,
Dear Mr. Bell:
Dr. Graham Bell requests that I forward to you, the enclosed copy of a letter which he has written to Mr. Octave Chanute.
Dr. Bell has just returned from a pleasant, though short visit to Washington where he attended the meeting of the Executive Board of the Smithsonian Regents. While in Washington he saw Mrs. Hubbard, Mr. and Mrs. Grosvenor, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bell, and they were all enjoying good health.
Dr. Bell is feeling much better after his little trip and I am glad to say that all are well at Beinn Bhreagh with the exception of Miss Marian who is suffering from a bad cold and a light fever. The Doctor came this morning and she is now feeling better and we all hope for a complete restoration to good health in a few days.
I trust that you and Mrs. Bell and Miss Mace have been having pleasant weather and enjoying good health since leaving here, but Dr. Bell would like to know WHERE you are.
With kindest regards to you and Mrs. Bell and Miss Mace, in which one and all join, I am,
(Signed) W. M. Mitchell.
