Dear Roscoe1;

Recent experience with the will of Edith3's Aunt4 has shown me the advantage of having a Trust5 Company for one executor, so I have made you and the American Exchange-Irving Trust Co. joint executors. I hope this won't interest you keenly for some years to come!

For the next few weeks my address will be The Shattuck Inn6 Jaffrey7 New Hampshire

Love to you all Willa
