[4]thankful one is for shelter & warmth!I am busy and weary from top to toe, and when these pesky Sunday talks are over, I want to come up. That was a sweet day you all gave to Mrs. Bettis and to me - how much it was to her I am sure you can not realize - and I want to come soon again.Goodnight. With love to all,Your friend,Katharine M. Graydon.November 28, 1896.02178Nov 23 96[2]Dear Mr. Muir,Yesterday I had a talk with a dear friend here, Mrs. Nash (do you remember her bright eyes that evening here?), who cares much to publish a little thing she has done with all her heart for wee creatures whom she loves and had made much study of. Above all things she would like to have the Century Co. publish it in book form, for the very youngest children, "three-year-olds," for whom it is written.
