I long to hear from you once more.I send a magazine containing some of my flower notes which may interest you, - if not, you, then Mrs. M. or the children. With best wishes, hoping the winter will be good to you, [and] with kindest regards to Mrs. M. and the children, I am,Faithfully yours,J. M.02890
