1Sweetest boy, send the enclosed to Carpenter at once. I like the
2letter so much I got to-day, my hearts brother. I’ve read it over
3often. Do tell me all you feel. It doesn’t matter if it makes me sad
4I’d rather that, than not know how you feel & think. I’ve got over
5my miserable foolishness about Maggie’s letter.
