4 Dear Lucy,

6 I can’t remember if I wrote the note of welcome to you which I meant
7to write. I hope you & your husband are both feeling really stronger
8for the change. I’m sure you found the dear children well cared for
9by Betty & Miss Greene. How grown you must find baby? I hope the new
10nurse will be a great success. I wish it had so happened that you were
11in Europe while I was there.
