My dear Wanda. When I got back from Boston yesterday morning, I made haste to the Century Rooms to see if any letters had come from home & I was very glad to find one from you, a good long one telling just what I wanted to know, that you were all well. And you told so many things about Elfie jumping on your lap & then running to play with Helen, & about Hefners dogs, & the cherries, & the weather & visits to the old place, & Aunt Maggie I got a good view of you all at home as if I had been there myself, And this shows your letter was a very good one. I’m glad you are learning to sing, for everything in the world sings in some way or other. Even the mosquitoes along the hedge, & the sand
