She appreciates your friendship very keenly & I am glad to think you will soon know each other better. Her little Casie (Gertrude) is as pure a piece of sunbeam as ever was condensed to human form Hoping that Ned will be able to come here to the mountain waters for perfect healing & that you will also find leisure for the satisfying of your thirst for beauty.
