How glad you1 would be, if you knew how happy it has made me, that you wrote me that dear letter4. I shall keep it all my life. I dictated a long letter5 to you on Sunday—you will get it someday. Just now everybody is struggling with the Income Tax.

My right hand6—(same old hand—) has been very bad for the last six weeks. It collapsed in the middle of a m new story7 which I was enjoying so much. Perhaps if I rest it I can take up the story again.

Lovingly and gratefullyWillie
