Please send Giles3 some of your hollyhock
seeds this fall. His have run out and he is fretting as if there were no more seeds
in the world. His hands are so shaky that I expect he does not write many letters.
Otherwise he seems much the same. Dorothy4
does not look a day older—is as pink and white as ever, like a plump China aster.
called to see Annie Freeze5 yesterday. Today
she starts West to visit brothers in Kansas
City6 and Topeka7.
Mrs. Pew's8 home on the road to Rock Enon9 burned down. The old woman was there alone and saved nothing. Yesterday we drove up the double S10 and alurs along the Ridge road to Molly
Muses11 Poor Molly looks very old, but the house and the flowers looked
very pretty to me. Tonight we12 go to Giles
Smith's for supper and stay all night. I will go to see cousin Mary Smith13 when I return to Winchester14. During the Fair last week she was
knocked senseless on the racetrack by a racing buggy. As Dorothy says "it was a fool
thing for her to be on the track anyhow!"
Lizzie Potts15 is so nice and sensible and makes us so comfortable. We will be here until a week from today.With much love Willie
