Dear darling precious sweet Jessie

I am so glad you are coming home so soon. We recieved your dear sweet little letter yesterday. Papa told us that you were up and walking yesterday, and we were so glad to hear it. We are all very well and so is Fräulein. Yesterday Mr. De Vries let us out early because he had an engagement and I went on my bycicle to Fräulein's because I havdn't been there for so long. She gave me a lot of ginger-snaps and I had a lovely time.

We had the club at Dorothy's to-day, and I did not have a very nice time because their are five boys in the club, Jack Fine, Willie Norris, Charlie Hitchcock, Randolph West and Thornton Emmeons, isn't that horrid. There are thirteen in the club now and the boys shout and yell and scream all the time and make it very disagreeable.

We had a perfectly lovely time at the Colonial Party. Margaret looked perfectly lovely. She will tell you more about it.
Puffins kittens are lovely little things now. Maggie and I were looking at them to-day and Maggie put her hand down and they spit at her and tried to scratch her but did not succeed.

Mrs. Warfield has a little niece named Pearll Fox staying with her, and she wants you and I me to take luncheon with her on Saturday. I am not going to Philadelphia so I can go, but I hardly want to go without you darling.


your loving sister,
