Saturday -7- P.M.

My Precious One -

I have just gotten my pen to start this little note when you came down the hall ready for dinner — Oh! my precious Sweetheart how many miles will roll between us when you read this — but no distance can really separate us.I cannot let you go without just this little message to take the place of our good-night talks - and tell you again I love you -Your visit has been the happiest one for me - and you have forgotten nothing that would add to my comfort or pleasure -Thank you again for all the tender little things that make me feel your love - and for the real confidence and sharing of the big ones that make up your busy life — Sunday-Morning

This is a real good bye — but time or distance need not count - and I am already looking forward to next Sunday when you will be coming back! Bless your precious Heart - I love you - and my arms are stretched out to hold, and shield you from any hurt or loneliness - and my thoughts will follow you throughout the night - and go before to welcome you when you reach the White House.

Edith
