I think my dear Margaret1 wrote me from the old Olin hotel just because she knew how miserable I was not to have seen her and the babies4 when they were in New York2. Absolute seclusion finally got me into shape to struggle with the problems that attend the translation of all my books into Italian and Spanish5. God knows I don't in the least want these translations made,—but Mary Virginia6 could explain to you what a crooked deal I got into by neglecting French translations7. I can not get away to Maine8 until I get these translations arranged.
I don't at all despair of seeing you, my dear, and the children before they
are very much older. If I have two very dear
nieces in or
drear near Denver3, I can't think I will be stupid
enough not to drop off in that part of Colorado9 one of these days. I go up to Maine only because
travel has been so difficult these last few years.
