⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dear Boy1;

Ah, they4 are all headed for matrimony5, I can see it! You and Meta6 had better adopt me, I won't go back on you.

Please take your motor trip. Go to Tuscon7, and go out to the very old mission of St. Xavier del Bac8, go again and again. It's about the loveliest thing on this side of the Atlantic. It's Franciscan—read up a little on St. Francis9. Everything about the place is lovely.

I'll write you about the Lake Placid10 plan11 later. Edith Lewis12 is a Delta Gamma, and greets her "sister in the Bonds13"

Hastily W.
