I think that Cecelia has lots of teeth. I hope she will always have plenty of good things to eat with them. I wish Anna that you could come to see me for I am lonesome sometimes I would learn you to draw pretty pictures and learn you how to find the names of all the trees and flowers and grapes and how to love them. I am glad that you are learning to read so well - if you were here you could read to me in the evenings when I am tired. You said that you were studying geo- graphy well you must look for Indianapolis sometimes and think on uncle John because he likes you 00386
