1 I think Mrs Cobb’s letter to the electors good, not because of its
2value to working people, but to women of the upper class if they
3should chance to read it. What a wonderful face she has! When I first
4met her I hardly thought her beautiful, & every time I have seen her
5it has grown more beautiful, till the last time as she sat in her
6summer house it seemed the most beautiful woman’s face I had even
7seen. What a beautiful memory the word, mother, will wake for her
8children. I always pictured your mother just like her.
