My dearest,

Your letter cheers me up this morning. It is the sweetest letter you have ever written me. I love every word of it. It has given me a new inspiration—a newer and broader vision of life—and another glimpse of your generous lovely character. Here is the picture of the cottage at Elberon. I think it will be very cozy—and we will be happy in it, and the happiness is bound to last, for I love you, and the love is so all yours, so unselfish for you, that I face the future almost certain that you will be happy.

I love you, my dearest, dearest Gertrude—

Cary
