My own dear Love, it is short-
ly after nine o’clock Sunday
morning and I shall have
time for a little talk with
my Darling before I begin
to dress for chamber. It is
such a beautiful bright day
and I am happy that
my little girl is going
to be out of doors and
happy and well. Your letter
yesterday troubled me, dear
Heart, for I long for you
to enjoy this little vacation
and being with the girls. Dear-
est every where we must
overlook some things, just
as people must overlook
our [?] and crazies! There
are trying things in human
nature and close contact
often brings out the most
trying in the friends for
whom we really care. The
same thing must be true of
ourselves! Dearest - so let us
be patient, and resting in
how much we care for
people and how much
that is lovely, there is in
them. That is quite a little
“preachment,” dear Heart.
but you will understand that
I first want my Girlie to
be patient and dear and
sweet and her own lovely
We have a very pleasant
time at Lidia’s - allowing
when I started, I really
wished that I might have
a quiet morning at home.
I had been waiting most
of the day and was tired
and a little heavy heart-
ed - for I was anxious
about my Bunny. There
were five of us - the Kimballs,
Ida, Lidia and her father
and myself and it was a
jovial little party. I never saw
Dr. King appear to so good
advantage - he had put on
his dress-shirt and with it
his happiest manner and
evidently is happy to do
everything to repay Lidia
for what she has done,
It is time for me to go
upstairs, my Sweet heart,
God bless you and keep
you, my own brave little Girl
whom I adore,
Your own May

My dear Miss Woolley:-
Your letter was received yesterday morning
with is enclosures and later the catalogue requests which you
forwarded. Everything has been attended to. The package from
Mr. Harbour has not yet arrived but I will forward it to Miss
Marks when it comes. There is considerable mail in the way of
catalogues, pamphlets, etc. for you at the Post Office but I have
not done anything about them as I have so much work on hand for
Miss Purington that I thought it might not matter if their ac-
knowledgment was delayed.
I see from your letter that you are having a busy time
and have made a good many visits already. Hoping that you will
write me if there is anything which I can attend to for you,
Believe me,
Very sincerely yours,
Helen P. Young
