1 Dear Friend
3 I was so glad to get your letter & Andres this evening. They did make
4me long to see you all in your beautiful home. I can well picture how
5charming Andre is now. If she only makes a wise choice when the time
6comes. But life sometimes seems to make the choice rather than the
7person themselves. I told Andre in my last that I had seen ?Wolner & A
8Wilson I liked them both.
10 Much love to you all
11 Olive
