May F. Benton
we might see you all [sometime?] Do you [illegible] visit Alaska now? This leaf is from Africa - As if anything so cool and silvery could come from that land of sun and [firey?] heat - Have you no picture of the little ones? How I wish I might see them – With may thanks for your remembrance,May F. [Bentar?] -
