They have told me what a fine trip you all had, and what a joy it was to have you with them. I had asked my sister-in-law not to invite me to go with them as I had thought they would for I must do some work I had planned. But they had not expected to have room for me coming home anyway. When I knew you were going too, I was just ready to give up my work and go with them, coming back by train if necessary.Hoping we shall have you back in Pasadena soon, and that you will really caome to stay in Altadena, as you said,With affectionate regard,Most sincerely your friendMary Frances Kellogg
