Nellie writes from Interlaken first. Here, she meets Rod and has time to catch up with him. He gets along well with the group, and they all go bike riding; but, Nellie's bike does not work properly, so she shops instead. She is excited to send letters about Rod to Davis, and she, writing from Geneva, says she has two more days with Rod.
