Miss Lund's report cheered us very much [although] I didn't in the least like the return of the ticket. However that is a mere incident and the main fact is that you <with> stood the fatigue of the journey and are going to get stronger fast & long! The third floor is such a [illegible] wilderness that I can't bear to go near it and my throat fills up when I think of you. You may be sure of a big store of affection and felicity here wherever you are. My love to your mother. Always yours, J.A.
