Dear Sister1;

Please get mother4 some nice flowers for her anniversary5 from me.

Will6 and Tom7 and M. V.8 dined with me here on Sunday night, and we had a really, truly jolly time. Tell mother I will write her all about it soon. Today I have a stiff neck and can’t sit at the typewriter. Tell her Edith9 likes Will Auld very much.

With love to you W.
