1 Dear
3 Have you read Younghusbands beautiful book, "Within, thoughts during
4convalescence." You may not like it as it is not ?Christianly ^or^
5Orthodoxy, or fortune telling. But I think you will feel the deep
6beauty if it. I sympathize so deeply with it, I have that feeling one
7sometimes has to a book, that one has written it oneself, you know the
8feeling, I am sure Alice would like it.
10 Good bye. I hope all goes well & happy with you, & that the dear
11children. I think they & Mrs Haldane Murray’s children are quite the
12two most charming groups of little children I have ever known. Give my
13love to darling Lucy when you write. When does she return.
15 Thine ever with tender love
16 Olive
