Helen so far away and alone! But she will no doubt find tender friends.Since you came from the Orient it has been one of my dearest wishes to hear you tell about the Himalayas. But I have not quite dared to intrude upon you.To have Miss Graydon here has opened wells of feeling that had long been sealed. It has been a pleasure, but a very sad one. What a tragedy is life, at best!I wish I could speak some adequate word of sympathy to you and yours. Is there such? - Good be with you, & let me write myselfAffectionately yours,Melville B. Anderson
