I hope this will reach you on your wedding day to give you my love and all my bright hopes for you. I am proud of your fine work in college, and of your professional work since you struck out for yourself. You have managed your life so well thus far that I feel confident that you are now beginning a new chapter which will make you happy.
I wish you could have been here2 along with the twins3, my dear. Everything did seem to come off so well and we4 enjoyed being together with all our hearts. I will write your mother5 about it later. I follow you lovingly into your future.Always your true friend Willa Cather
