This morning we3 took the films to the photograph place and were disappointed to find that we could'nt get the prints until Monday. Then we went with Miss Osborne4 and purchased many foolish underclothing, called at the American Express, etc. After eating unto discomfort of Mme Sibrut5's delicious fish au gratin, we went to the Luxemborg6, sat in the garden and put in two hours in four rooms7. Then we had a royal bath and, returning, clad ourselves in white duck which fired Miss Osborne to array herself likewise. Dorothy do please speak to Miss Horne8 about our washing. The woman failed to return a new suit of union underwear that I paid much good money for.

Love from us all Willa

Weather fine.
