My dear Alice
I hadn't counted upon Miss Landsberg''s being in Europe and, as you see by Miss Wald's letter, there seems to be no other person. You did not say at first that [Mde?] A. was connected with the Sargeant School, that really ought to be enough in [page 2] the way of a recommendation, I should think.
I am sorry not to have seen Marcet yesterday -- while Mary Smith is better, I didn't feel that I could leave her the first week.
We are quite enjoying our rest here -- Always your loving sister J. A.
I have written Esther to send you a picture of Eri.
