Mother5 wants me to thank you for your beautiful letter6 to her. It was one of so many warm and affectionate attentions that I feel this winter has brought you both closer to us than you have ever been before—and we have always been close friends. Close friends is a homely phrase, but it means a great deal in this world.
Mother is going to California7 with Douglass8, but I will stay on a few days to close the house9, and I will surely see you.Yours always Willa Mr. & Mrs. Sidney Florance10 Red Cloud2 Nebraska RED CLOUD,NEBR.2 MAR 16 1928 7-30P
