Dear Papa -

All goes well here & Im well & happy and rich in flowers, for Alice Manson sent me another boxful yesterday & my cabin is all color & sweetness - everyone is so good about keeping me supplied with flowers - Im a lucky girl.
Im lookg for word from Wanda today telling me if she is coming on tomorrow's 8 or not. Im glad the deeds are signed at last. I promise you I wont talk business to anyone, or any worrisome subject with Wanda - we'll be just two little girls.

Lovingly yours
