It's a proud aunt I am, my Darling Twinnies1! Your great news5 reached me only this morning, forwarded from New York6. Miss Lewis7 brought me up here2 a week ago, very shaky, as I couldn't seem to pull up after a severe attack of bronchitis. She went home three days ago and forwarded your letters, but country mails are slow.
I wouldn't love you one bit better if you had all the honors in the world. I love your two selves, and if you had even flunked your exams I would not change my estimate of you one bit. But I am delighted now because you are, and it's always a joy to see people get what they have worked for. So your keys8 make me happy, as they do your mother9 and father10.
Now about Grand Manan11. I am a poor
stick just now, so you'll have to do the
brambrain work. Find

I was so glad to get a nice letter from Virginia14. Please give her a hug for me and tell her I will write her soon. I promised my Doctor not to write a single letter up here, but he would admit that such nieces and such circumstances are exceptional!Lovingly Your Aunt Willie THE SHATTUCK INN
