Abstract

Summary 1. Glad you are so happy; you're "a girl born to luck" with a loving family, excellent prospective husband, and a beautiful house awaiting you; the hardest thing is leaving the girlhood home; but perhaps we should think of it as adding another loved spot; if nothing prevents me I will be at the wedding; wish you and Jane could be in Cincinnati with me on the 17th; a good many folks from here would like to go [to Philipe's wedding?] but would have to leave a 4 a.m.; wish you could be here; TAE should come and take notes; too bad about the household goods not reaching Florida in safety; you will always be among my dearest friends; glad TAE thinks of me kindly; "he is a splendid man."
