⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Brother1;

A lovely Easter basket you gave me! I kept it on my desk all day, and tomorrow it will be on the little table beside my bed when I have my breakfast on from a tray. I think I enjoy flowers most as breakfast time and with my afternoon tea. You were a good boy to think of me. and Remember, our mysterious meeting is not called off, merely postponed.

Lovingly Willie
Mr. R. C. Cather,1 First Savings Bank of Colusa, Colusa,3 California. NEW YORK, N.Y.2 MAR 26 1940 1030 AM
