Editor's Notes

14-7648. [From Athens Greece] Mother wrote that you are expecting a baby; sorry to hear you've had to go through so much this winter; if you're happy about it [pregnancy], I'm happy, but if you regret it, I'm sorry; once the baby comes you will be happy; you should confide in Marion; would make her feel better; she won't be able to help loving the baby; "Mother said you were afraid Marion will not love it"; we will sail from Liverpool 18 June and land the following week; thought to spend time with you before going home; [asks what clothes, Mina would like from Europe]; would TAE like me to get you a seal skin coat; only had two letters from you since we left NY; write me; [gives itinerary of trip from Italy-Greece-Alexandria]; disappointed father did not come; TAE's illness, your pregnancy, and father's illness made me want to give up the trip and come home; father telegraphed that I should complete the trip; sorry you couldn't go to Robert's wedding; you must have had a good time when he visited your southern house. Anna's mother came over for her and they return home in April. Anna is not well enough to travel. [The reference is to Ann Milburn (Mrs. Clement Studebaker) and her daughter Anna (or Anne).
