Letter from (Mrs.?) A. R. Robinson of Portland, Maine, to Mrs. Lucretia Turner of Deer Isle. The letter discusses the room preferences of Mrs. Robinson and her party for the summer, and also where individuals will get their board, or food, during their summer visit to Deer Isle. This type of boarding was common during the early period of summer tourism on the Maine coast. Some coastal and island residents would vacate their homes for the summer in order to accommodate tourists, while others rented out spare rooms.
