My dearest Ruthy:

Just arrived at Forest Hill (5:00 P. M.) and with exception of sore feet am in fair

She appears to have straightened out the upstairs rooms and everything seems quite
straight except there is a terrible air of lonliness about the place. Milton, I learn has
whooping cough and is vomiting and passing all meals by. Enclosed is a letter from the
slob — Miss Cameroon — which I know? you will be quite pleased to receive. Will probably
be down on Saturday P. M. and hope you get along all right. With much love to yourself
and all the babies, I am

Always your
