My Dearest Dorothy1:

A word to tell you that Michigan3 turned out to be very jolly4 after all. The place is hideous[?], but the people awfully interesting, and they were very nice to me.

Now I am at home2 playing all day long with my jolly little nieces5 and nephews6. Mother7 and father8 are as well as I am, and can drive forty miles to a picnic without getting tired. I guess the truth is I am never so happy anywhere as I am in Red Cloud!

With love to you Willa
