Your autumn greeting came this morning and is in a glass bowl on my work table—where I am not working very hard just now.
Nothing that ever happened to me cut me up like Roscoe’s3
death4. We have kept in such close touch
always, and since his first illness six years ago when I went to California5
to see him we have written to each other every week.
Well, all that is over, and his three
dear daughters6 and Jim’s7
two warm hearted children8 are the
closest closest ties left.
Thank you, dear Carrie that you bear me in mind and are still kind to me.Lovingly Willie November 6th
