Dearest J A
I have just finished your beautiful book. All the way along, as I have been moved by its vigorous and delicate interpretation of simple stuff I have thought of words, not noble enough, but of a [page 2] tender appreciation, -- those Hamlet says about Ophelia that "everything she turns to favor and to prettiness."
Dear J. A, you cannot have the smallest idea how much good you do to
