[2]Echoing songs The glorious sun smiles upon us and the skies above are deep blue; at night the glorious band of stars march over us in their silent sparkling way. Venus is bright enough to cast a shadow and old Jupiter with its string of moons makes a beautiful picture in the "scape. Katharine and her band are[3]at the beach for a few days. They will find the inside of the house fully decorated with the gardens glow when they return. Alice and Fred are busy and Chupins the car takes us out to see the glorious bloom all about and the green green hills, poppin by the million--and dandelions!!!!!!We miss you and hope to hear that you are
