My Dear Brother1,

Thank you for giving me a tip about Jess's3 actual resources. I don't like to think of her as pinched, but I agree with you that Tom4 should be held up to his agreement.

Why does Elizabeth5 apologize for the baby's6 picture? Why that's just the way a healthy baby ought to look. Whoever wanted a skinny baby! Thank you so much for both letters from the girls7. I am taking the baby's picture to Grand Manan8 to show it to Elizabeth's many friends there.

Dick9 drove Virginia10 to a hotel in the country today, so I am leaving for Grand Manan on Monday

Hastily W.
