[2]find your old home. The memory of our delightful visit with you last summer will give the place an added meaning for us. We wish that you were going with us, that we might see Scotland through your all-observing Scotch eyes.Mr. Newton plans to return in September and the children and I[3]in October, putting in the latter part of our time in France. How I wish we might send you some of the French bread we shall enjoy there!We often talk of our visit to Muir Woods and to your home, and the children always end by smacking their lips over the delicious peaches that grow in front of your house.
