Yesterday was Holy Thursday and I went to hear a beautiful rendering of St. Matthew's Passion5. I wished for the twins6. I am so glad I stopped7 in Wyoming8 for I had a delightful visit with them. The weather was lovely there. It is dark and rainy here. I am going to a service at Dr. Wade's9 church10 this afternoon. I had a pleasant talk with him over the telephone this morning. I have not seen Mary Virginia11 yet but will telephone her today and arrange a meeting. The Knopfs12 sent me a gorgeous Easter plant, and I find a big basket full of letters here to be answered. My stenographer13 will come tomorrow and help me catch up with my mail. I shall think of you all very lovingly on Easter. I did enjoy my visit with you in that lovely place so much, and I had such nice times with Elsie14 and Douglass15.With my dearest love Willie
Dear Sister14; I'm afraid I left some things in the writing table drawer of my cottage16—perhaps you'd better look—don't think there was anything I need. And I did find your little scissors in the bottom of my little sewing bag! Such an awful guest as I am, to break a vase and carry off scissors!
