My Precious One -

I am so glad you went to the Theatre last night - and had some thing to divert and cheer you- We all enjoyed the “Tea Party” so yesterday and Mother is in love with you - Said she did not feel the least bit embarrassed or formal with you that, on the contrary, she felt she had known you always and knew she was going to love you - (as if anyone could help loving you when once they really know you-) and Bertha was distressed that she had no opportunity to say all the sweet welcoming things she wanted to say to you - I was so proud of you Sweetheart - and always expect to be - It was right funny that after dinner last night Randolph said “Let's all go to Keiths”- and I said I was too tired to do it- and came home at nine thirty and went to bed - I wonder if I would have felt braced enough to go had I known you were there?

I have been down town all morning - and seen to a lot of things that had to have my personal attention - I hear old Mr. Wilson is back, so I must brace myself for another campaign - Helen says she will come at 2 - so this is just a hurried line to tell you my precious Woodrow how I love you and how I am missing you -Dont stay in the sun too long if you go to the Golf Club- it seems to me terribly hot Mrs. Rose sent me the enclosed please keep it for me -

Always your
Very own,
