May F. B[enton]
"sticky skies" of Oakland have held me fast.How we all would like to see you- [FT?] think Wanda is growing to be a great girl and has not even been in O. She is very birght and sweet I hear. Do you still regale her with character stories?We are all about the same - Mother suffereing from a severe cold just now and I with enough headaches to keep me from accomplishing anything_We hear you thought of another Arctic trip; is it true?Why are we not made happy by seeing your name in The Century?Has your soul gone into the soil and awaits resurrection?Come and see us_Gratefully May F.B.
