I’m glad you could use the dresser—and I’m so glad you like my Archbishop3. Everyone who has seen the manuscript thinks it my best story. Tell the little girl4 I liked her exposition about the furies, and I wish she would write me what she liked best in Sarah Crewe5, it would guide me in selecting other books for her. Mary Virginia6 was so pleased with Charles Edwin7, she says he is just a dear little boy. I do think you and Jim8 have such nice children. They must be a lot of pleasure to you all the time.With love to you all Willa
Oh Ethel, I thought the family group splendid! I am delighted to have it.
