Darling Mother,
Just a few lines to tell you what a very happy time I am having with Margaret. We have been talking of you just now. She is a wonderfully sweet girl. She sends the car for me each day and we have a wonderful visit in her room. Her dear father is fast gaining, I am so happy to tell you. He "sits up," part of the time now.

Mrs. McAdoo is still there. They have a box for the Philadelphia Symphony this afternoon and I am to go with them. You know how I love music and how rested and happy, I will be this afternoon! I am looking for a letter from you today. I hope so, as your letters do me a world of good, darling mother. Hope all is well and how I wish you were going with me to the concert today. What to wear? Do all women always have that question confronting them? I wonder? 

I send you a heart full of love and devotion. You must feel in your heart how dearly I love you dear! Keep happy and cheerful, dear. We will be able to see each other, after a little. You will come visit me. 

Love to all,
Your devoted child,
Sara
