Dear Roscoe1

The sage is lovely on my mantel still, and I have enjoyed it so much. Will you please send me the names of the two colored French prints I sent you last year at Christmas time? A friend of mine is sellling selling off her things and I may pick up one of her French prints for Meta4.

Lots of love to you Willie
