2 P.M.

When you read this I shall probably be at homeThink of it – really in Washington again!! I have just decided to take the midnight train and should be there by seven — I am going up to the Cordova to breakfast with Mother – and afterwards to my own nest. I wonder if I can wait until Saturday to see you — but, at least I will know you are near.Do tell me you are glad I came without waiting to tell you. I just decided while we were at lunch – as Mr. Rose said they wanted to make an early start tomorrow morning — and would I mind if they left before I did –So I just said— No–indeed–not in the least, I will take the night train and be home early tomorrow morning– So I went right out and telegraphed Randolph– How I wanted to wire you too – but I knew I must not– So I will leave the address for your precious letter to be forwarded to me tomorrow– and skip off without a regret. — I am so excited over it – and know you will be.Thank you for sending me Helen's letter. It is just like her – and I know she meant every word of it – bless her heart.They are waiting for me so goodbye my precious One. Hurrah – no more letters – for I am coming!!!!

P.S. I got your dear letter this morning – it has made my day bright
