⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dear Louise1;

Your lovely roses have been such delightful companions to me all this day while I was wending the roads in "Lucy Gayheart."3 In these days one has to squeeze one's memory hard to remember just what it was like to walk over frozen country roads in certain weathers. Not very important, and I had side-stepped it. But this morning I sat down and made myself remember.

With love W. S. C.
