Dear Daddy-Long-Legs,

 

六月二日

親愛的長腿叔叔:

You will never guess the nice thing that has happened.

你絕猜不到發生了什麼好事.

The McBrides have asked me to spend the summer at their camp in the Adirondacks! They belong to a sort of club on a lovely little lake in the middle of the woods. The different members have houses made of logs dotted about among the trees, and they go canoeing on the lake, and take long walks through trails to other camps, and have dances once a week in the club house—Jimmie McBride is going to have a college friend visiting him part of the summer, so you see we shall have plenty of men to dance with.

麥克白家邀請我去他們家在阿帝朗德克斯的露營地過暑假.他們家是森林中一個可愛的小湖的某個俱樂部的成員.不同的成員擁有座落在林中的小木屋,大家在湖上划獨木舟,從一個營地健行到另一個,每週在俱樂部跳一次舞 - 吉米麥克白的一個大學同學會來找他,可想而知我們會有蠻多男士可以共舞的.

Wasn't it sweet of Mrs. McBride to ask me? It appears that she liked me when I was there for Christmas.

麥克白太太邀請我去,她真是一個好人,不是嗎?看起來我去麥克白家過耶誕時,她對我留下不錯的印象.

Please excuse this being short. It isn't a real letter; it's just to let you know that I'm disposed of for the summer.

請原諒這封信的簡短.這並不算是一封信,只是讓你知道我如何安排暑假.

Yours,

In a VERY contented frame of mind,

Judy

非常滿足的,

茱蒂
