Dear Gertrude

Just a line or two to say good-morning and I love you. I am so glad you are enjoying your visit with Miss Edith and Miss Helen, I felt sure that you would—hence I was anxious for you to stay.

Mr & Mrs. McAdoo came in a few minutes ago. Both report a fine trip. He brings a bad cold home. Tell Miss Helen that they were pleased beyond expression how fine the baby looked & all. Tell her that Ellen recognized both of them, and when I told her to show her tongue to her Mother and Father she did so without a movement’s hesitation. She is a wonderful child. She tipped the scales at even fourteen pounds this morning.

I enclose a letter from my cousin, Dr. Charles P. Grayson, it is just like him and you will be so fond of him when you know him. Here is also one from my dear friend Miss Garrett. In reading it, you must make due allowance for the fact that she is fond of me, and believes in me. You remember that you have warned me against paying any heed to anything, however good, that a Virginian might say about me.

I enclose another letter, how do you like the superscription?

Until to-morrow—and always

Your devoted
