sent word to my sister-in-law to do the same for hersI greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness.I have been watching for a long time for the book to come out, and in fact, had an order in for one in March, at Williams' Book Nook. I succeeded about a week ago in getting a copy, and started to read it on the way home. The book was half read before bed-time, and would have been entirely finishedhad not less pleasing occupations demanded my attention. However, the next day saw it finished. It is so fascinating, and some of it so pathetic; and I was laughing or almost crying half of the time.Of course, the copy I had already gotten will go as a gift to some friend, while the more treasured one from you will remain in my possession.I am very sorry to hear that your daughter Helen
