[6]helpless at it. The subject is too large for me. The more I try to learn, the less I seem to know. I have often read about your lovely fruit & flowers. I hope yours will do well & repay you. We will not have any strawberries this year, or early potatoes, as a severe frost came about a week ago & blackened all the trees etc.I hope you will get[7]your book finished & well published. You have a great deal of writing to do. I've been getting the "Century" Magazine but your articles have not been in yet.Miss M. Kier send her kind remembrance & she wishes she had been able to see a little more of you. & with kind loveBelieve meYour Affectionate CousinSusan M. Gilroy
