My Dear Carrie1;

Whatever happens I shall always have the wonderful days of last summer3 to remember. We were both pretty sick, but so happy to be together—just to sit and look at each other.

I have been in bed for two weeks with a severe case of influenza. This is my first day out of bed—I'm allowed to sit up for three hours.
