Abstract

11-6123. Dear Mina, I presume as the time draws near you get more & more anxious. I hope mother will be well enough to come to you soon. She is getting better fast now, she lay out on the lounge most of the morning and sat up for a short time. She often talks about you. I think she would like to stay at home with Grace until you really need her and then she wants to go to you--she thinks you will want her more after the nurse goes than you do now and she thinks it makessuch a long time. I tell her she must stay with you all summer, would you not like to [have?] her! The little boys will be at Chataugua and you will not be able to leave home before Sept. and I think if will do her so much good to be away for the summer and she does not care to go to Chataugua. We all want you to come home in September when the girls return from Europe. You must plan to make us a long visit then and at Christmas time. WE must all spend Christmas at home next time.###I hope you received the boys all right and that it pleases you. Robert was up Saturday afternoon to see Mother--Louise is about the house and [must out?] for a week on Sunday. Louis spent Sunday with them.###Margret and Cora are both quite well. Margret is getting to be quite [cunning?]. She [in?] her short clothes now. [?]### Mother wished me to thank you for those napkins. I think they are very nice to have also. Father I think will go to New York tomorrow if Mother keeps getting better and I think she is doing very nicely indeed.### With ever so much love from Mother and me, Yours, Lovingly-- Jennie
