"THE PLACE I CONSIDER TO BE THE
NICEST SUMMER RESORT IN
CUMBERLAND, AND WHY?"

******

Dear Uncle Sam, - The best summer resort in Cumberland is St. Bees. The
reason I consider St. Bees the best is because it is a quiet little village, and
it is a pleasure to walk along the sand or on the cliffs and breathe the pure
sea air. There are lots of people who go there to spend their summer
holidays. - I remain yours truly,

John EWING,
Rosebank, Hensingham.

Dear Uncle Sam, - The place which I consider the best resort in summer in
Cumberland is Cockermouth. When we are there we can see the shops, the old
castle, a monument, and a big clock. The clock has four faces. It was put up in
memory of Edward WAUGH. The four faces of the clock look up four different
streets. We could go and watch the trains coming in and going out of the
station. There are two auctions, and we go on Mondays into them and watch the
auctioneers selling cows, sheep, pigs, poultry, &c. - Your affectionate nephew,

T. S. BEATTIE,
Wasdale Head.

Dear Uncle Sam, - The summer resort I like best is St. Bees. It is situated
not far from Hensingham. There are rocks to ramble over. It is nice to watch
the ships going over the water, and see the tide coming in and going out. Then
the sea air makes you feel hungry, which is a good sign of health. - I
remain, your affectionate nephew,

Andrew COWLER,
Main - street, Hensingham.

Dear Uncle Sam, - The summer resort I like best is Ennerdale, where there
are mountains to climb, and the lake to sail on. And after either a row on the
lake or a climb up the mountains, you feel hungry, and that shows that the
place is very healthy, - I remain your affectionate niece,

Mary PROUD,
Main-street, Hensingham.

Dear Uncle Sam, - I think the best summer resort is Calderbridge. At this
place there is the Abbey, which you can visit. It is open for visitors on
Tuesdays and Thursdays. The air is very sweet and pure. It is a very pleasant
place for children to go to when they get a holiday. - I remain your affectionate
nephew,

Thomas BURNS,
Williamson Terrace, Hensingham.


******

Dear Uncle Sam, - The place I consider to be the nicest summer resort is
Coniston, because it has such beautiful scenery. I was once there on our choir
trip, and I thought it very nice. I had a sail on the lake, and a very jolly
day. - I remain, your loving niece,

Jane STEWART,
Moss Side, Calderbridge.
