6true lovers I have known (as the flowers are your beloved) and we shall exchange the secrets of our existence soon. Have they grief and pain also, these sinless creatures? Do they rejoice to be gathered?Theirs Sunday thoughts enough for this time. And I am not going to tell you how sorry I am. Get well & come and see. I wrote you as soon as I heard of the misfortune (dont imagine it all yours) to the care of Miss (or Mis?) Merrill. Thank you for the Climacium. Your muscles deserve a rest, and this may make a doctor of you. making you sympathetic with the ner- vous. The Butlers and all of us speak often of you. Deanne Carr00404
