Dear Bobbie1

We had two grand weeks in Virginia4, and now I am working hard. Isabelle5 busy getting ready for Edith's6 wedding. I'm so glad you are riding horseback. I want to see that lovely country7. Tell Roscoe8 I enjoyed his nice letter so much. Here is a notice9 from the "Nation"10 which you must read and send back to me. I like to beat those two flossy boys11, Norris12 and Phillips13.

Too busy to write, dear, but I send a world of love.
