[2]I take for granted you will keep Helen away for the winter, and that you will stay with her; just let me know all especially just how she is. If there is anything I can do for the girls, don't hesitate to mention it. I now wish I had stayed to help Wanda - or to go with Helen. I fear my eagerness to get home and my fatigue made me selfish. I did not mean to be.I am with my sister Mary, where my Mother came to[3]meet me, and have had two dear weeks. In a few days we go over to Indianapolis, where I shall be for a year, save a visit, after Christmas, to Washington, New York and Boston. If you wish me to meet any friend, just say so; if not, never think of it again. I am glad to see our Eastern cities, tho I go to them as stranger.My permanent address will be at Julia's,52 S. Audubon RoadIrvington, Indiana.All these are as usual, only I know the fears are
