[letterhead]When I hear you are better I'll care for nothing else in the world. I kept regretting you were not with us, the first day but the dust & stuffy rooms & hard fare generally makes me try to think you are better at home, though in camp beneath the pines if you could stay a month or two you might be better.The glory of the woods herabouts now is the color of the flowering dogwood glorious names of red & purple & yellow, beneath the pines & firs Good night darling Let me hear you are better I can't get the sound of that cough out of my ears- All here enquire & send love. Love to Maggie & Wanda
