of you to ask me, but it was too far to attempt. I heard from aunts Minnie & Nellie & your sisters how pleasant it was & how charming Mildred (Patricia) was. It must indeed be lovely for you not to send her off alone, though she seems to have much common sense & wisdom, & to have fought her own battles well. I like the stories I hear of her kindness – I think that was always a big feature in her character from the time she was a little child. I hope she will be very happy.
John had left before your letter came so I could not show him the Bishop’s letter – a very pleasant one which I now return. It was very nice to have him & Nellie here together. With love to you all
