I know to have you remember her with your lovely book.
This is commencement week at the Bishop's school & I came down to spend a little of it with dear Dorothy. She comes home tomorrow.

Colorado, & anticipate a glorious time in the open, & afterwards Dorothy & I are going on to Detroit to spend a little time with Winnie.
