Grandma holds her for an hour at a time talking to here and smiling at her sweet baby ways. They all think they cannot do without her now. I send a picture of Jessie which was taken in the summer, Please tell Louie it is for her with my love and kindest wishes, I think Louie's life and mine must be much the same for the little girlies take our minds and our hearts and our time.


Dear John I received your very kind letter of last summer but was not at the time well enough to reply. I shall not look for any letter from you at present for you have enough other writing to do and we have news of you now from Annie's letter but I will try to write again before very long. Love to your sweet little Wanda and Helen.
