I got the most beautiful curtains for the bay window in Hastings3—just right for the carpet and paper. I had Miss Blumer4 here5 all day yesterday working on them. I know you'll love them. Lizzie6 has been sick for two days, so I have been cook. Helen Louise7 came yesterday and she is a splendid helper in the kitchen, though she is only seven. Poor Virginia8 tries, but she is so awkward about most things. No word of Elsie9 yet. I'm so grateful to you for getting home while I was here, and I know it was hard for you to come at that time. I was awfully good of you to manage it. I hope things are going splendidly for you since you got back.With lots of love Willa Mr. C. D.
