Dearest L. D. W.
Jane and I want you to spend this little [check] for some trifle you will like for the "House on the Pond." I wish we might be here [tomorrow] to embrace you and wish you all the [page 2] happiness we crave for you. You should have the best that is possible in this dreary world and I believe you do -- really.
We both send you assurances, which you don't need, of our deep affection and I'm
Always your devoted and grateful
