Mary Frances Kellogg
Perhaps you never received my letter thanking you for the "Boyhood" book, and telling you that I had been so anxious to read it that I had been pestering the book-dealers for weeks & had succeeded in getting one some days before Mr. Vroman received the consignment in which were the copies for my sister-in-law & myself.I had already read the book, with the greatest interest, and had shed tears over some ofyour hard times. I read it in a day & could not put it down until it was finished. You wrote me asking if Mrs. Kellogg & I had received copies from Vroman's, and I went to them, discovering the books had just arrived.My sister was, of course, wonderfully pleased, & I am sure she must have written. I know it was her intention to write at once.When you are again in Pasadena, we hope you will write your name
