My dear Good Friend,

So very much do I wish to thank you for the beautiful new Book - It is the very best of all! For it is you, just you!



Everybody is going to love it. - especially the children.
It brings to Fred and me so very many happy memories of those blissful other days when we were all together among the roses.
I am in the


country today- and this the only pen.-.
We have four acres - a little house under a wonderful live oak tree - surrounded by orange trees.
We want some fine trees. Sometime please make me a list of some
