I am so grateful for your letter, which came yesterday. Please tell Father3 that I did not commit the picturesque extravagance of sending my book4 by air mail! I tied my advance copy up and told the Knopfs5 to send it quickly, as I wanted Father to have it to read while he was getting well, and the air mail was their own sumptuous, oriental gesture.

I have given up my passage on the Berengaria6. I don't feel like going so far with Father sick7. I'd be worried all the time.
Edith8 has been awfully nice about it. All
tr things go into storage on Monday, and after a few days
