01647 [6]as you looked upon that wonderful scenery all so new to you, before you had written for the press or that “first book.” do you remember that I have the old quill you wrote it with, you gave it to me to keep as a memento. The snow is nearly gone now, just a patch here and there, the winter has been long and severe but perhaps we will enjoy the beautiful spring days the more with the sunshine and flowers. There is certainly far less sickness now than after the milder winters. Give my love to Louie and tell her I have been wondering if she is coming to the worlds fair and so we may have a visit with her and perhaps some of the others of the family, also love to the children and grandma – and yourself JohnAffectionately Sarah.
