⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dearest Irene1;

The magic lozenges came3 on Saturday, the curtains are washed and in place. I was delighted to get that book of Upton4's, it's just what I wanted and supplements the three of his I have already. A world of thanks to you for both. I met Lewellen Jones5 at a dinner the other night and agreed with him that New York2 is a very poor place to shop.

I sent you a newspaper article on a writer in whom Josephine Gund6 was interested; please send it on to her.

I also send you another article, by Professor Brown7 of Bowdoin College, Maine8, on a writer in whom you and Carrie9 are interested. Please read it yourself and send it on to Carrie. She can send it back someday.

And someday please send me the letter10 from Collier's11, with a note from you, to tell me how things are going and what you are doing. It's nice to fish a few letters I want out of the many I don't want, of a morning!

My love, as always Willie
