Dearest Peddy: [??]
So that you may promptly
collapse I’ll tell you that
“Piglet” [??] has been returned [??] by the
Atlantic. Don’t be discouraged,
I’m not entirely so!
The Enclosed letter explains itself.
I have written Mrs. Kimbee [??] to have
a carriage to meet you at 6.05
A.m. I will get there Saturday
evening between nine and ten
o’clock. I don’t know how well
I shall sleep for waiting for you.
I wish three o’clock
instead of six o’clock! That’s
selfish, Mary [?? Mum?]
[2]
I have terms they keep this [?]
[?] not so they [?????] I’ve
had time to be pretty blue. It
will restore my self confidence
to have you come back. I suppose
I have no light to think [??] of my self
and see [????]! [???]
luck has givings [??] about my wakefulness [??]
and [?]. I think a couple
of years more of this life will Kill
all that’s warm [?] and sensitive
there is in me. Dearest, can’t
we have a home?
I have a stay to make on [??]
Sunday which is to cost me
from [?] of [?] And to
be returned four times [??] And then
die a nat’ral death.
Goodnight, Belovèd and Best,

Nobody’s better I’m sure and no-
body could be more beloved. Dearest,
you gentle [??] fill [?? feel?] like [??] my life, my
thoughts, my heart, my Everything,
Your very own Jean.

Miss Henrietta A. Marks,
Mt. Holyoke College,
South Hadley, Mass.

My dear Miss Marks:-
In answer to your favor of this date,
would say, that we would be pleased to re-
serve room for Miss Wooley [sic] and yourself for
Saturday and Sunday nights, in a quiet part of
our house. And, while we have no porter who
could meet you at the train, we have a reliable
carriage man who would meet Miss Wooley with
carriage.
If this is satisfactory, and we hear
from you to that effect, the writer will per-
sonally see that you are well taken care of.
Very respectfully,
THE WORTHY HOTEL CO.
Mary W. Kimball
