My Darling Twinnies;1

Such a lovely surprise! Edith4 is now convinced that there is no candy in the world like Baur's5. It came at a time when we needed cheering—a steady warm rain here2 for three weeks and Virginia's6 Dick7 in the hospital with pneumonia—gloomy enough. But now he is much better, though the weather is not.

Thank you, my dears. With love from both of us.

Your aunt Willie
