1 I shall keep your friend in mind if ever I should meet her, but life
2is very short & one has so much to do. You understand I think? One
3feels drawn to earth sometimes by the multitude of people & letters
4one would like to spend one’s life over. I, too, don’t feel so
5much I want to teach as to listen. I will read with deep interest when
6I go to my library on Sunday the article in the Westminster.
