⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Irene1:

The silk undervests are the greatest comfort in the world! I don't see why I never found any like them before. I've worn them to many dinner parties, and they stay up in their place beautifully. So far the winter has been busy and very gay. I'm not as well as I ought to be, but much better than I was in Red Cloud4. Josephine5 keeps a good atmosphere for me to work in. We6've been having lots of interesting people on Fridays. All the younger writers are very nice to me. I do appreciate it.

Lovingly Willie
Mrs. Chas. W. Weisz1 818 Lafayette Parkway Chicago3 Ill. NEW YORK, N.Y.2 FEB 5 1922 430 PM
