⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Helen1;

I'm having a glorious winter with them3. We've been doing so many things that I've not yet been to the opera once, but I'm going tomorrow night to hear Don Giovanni4. I wish you were going with me!

Yes, when I left you I was wondering if you'd fight it through. But now I know you will. It was queer you should guess how I felt then. It takes a lot of grit to stick it out.

Yours W. S. C.
