My Darling Margaret1;

Such a nice letter I had from you, and last night one from Elizabeth4. If you want to please me very much you must each write a nice letter to Edith5. She loves you both, and she will feel hurt if you don't.

We walked to the Released Beech tree yesterday—it is now full of beech nuts! Lovely View from there.

Hastily W.
Miss Margaret Cather1 c/o 754 Oak Street Colusa3 California U. S. A. N.B.2 [illegible] Air Mail
