Dearest Sister1:

Lovely crossing, mild weather, Edith4 languid but not really ill at all. She has missed only one meal in the dining room, and reposes peacefully on the deck.

Please send this to the twins5, so they will know how well we got through. I've been well, as I always am at sea. Mary Virginia6 came down to see us off and wanted to stow away in our cabin!

With love to you all W. S. C.
