What a relief and pleasure it was to get a letter from you! Miss Bloom4 is away and Edith5 is writing this line to you. Some days ago my brace6 went wrong and I found the inconvenience of having a doctor7 in Boston8. Today I saw a student of his, who fixed the brace for me, and now I am much more comfortable. The Boston doctor comes next Sunday. I will write you very soon. This is only to send my love, and explain my silence.Lovingly to you both9 Willie Mr. R. C.
