⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dear Trix1

It seems almost to good to happen, that I shall really see you again! I want you and Sidney3 to come to my apartment4 for dinner while you are here2. We can arrange a date by telephone.

My telephone is Regent 4-8354 It is not in the telephone book, but you can always call me up between 1 p.m. and 1:30. I am sure to be here at that hour.

I look forward hopefully to this meeting. Here we can talk quietly and really feel together, as we used to in your parlor in Red Cloud5. That would seem wonderful to me!

Lovingly Willa
