I want to write you such a long letter, but must content myself with wishing you a Happy Easter. We are down here2 to get Edith3 well faster—go home on Holy Thursday. We did enjoy M.V.'s4 visit, though she stayed at the University Club. This year Rebecca West5 gave another party at Fannie Hurst's6 studio, and this time I took Virginia! Fate does not often give us a second chance, does it?
I got a dozen lovely pink roses for Edith from you for two dollars! ($2.00) so please send me my bill for fish and candy!
The air down here is doing me a lot of good, too. I was tired! All the worry and work that went with Edith's illness7, and the slow drag after she got home; trying to help M.V. have a good time, it all did do me out at last. I am grateful for this rest. Please give my warmest congratulations and good wishes to Stella Kirker8, and a happy Easter to you my dear.Willie
