illustrate it? Please dont work too hard on it and get all tired out before you start on your long trip. It is so nice that you are out of New York City in a quieter place. Just think what a lot of you have all over the world.I must not forget to tell you that my eyes are better, but then you will probably know it from this long letter. I write to very few, and the only reading I do [illegible] your letters to me. The rest are read to me, and I hope in a little while [illegible] be all right so I can read books.It is time to feed the baby now. He is in his little go-cart in this room, watching me write, and playing with his feet. And Oh yes, he can put his toe in his mouth.Ever lovingly[illegible][05070]
