[3]or even told me that you would like one more letter - but here it is.Just think I skipped away from big New York for two weeks & came down here to my little niece & sister to rest & play with them. The country is more to my liking than the city. Often I long for your wonder country where the hills are near, and the "hustle" less absorbing & demanding.Mother sails for Egypt this next week, & Bill & I will be left to our own devices in N.Y. on a ninth floor apartment - Comparisons are severe aren't they! Do write to me soon[Yours?]


Pottstown, Penn.
