You call it quite simple, but it seems to me to be very learned and full of knowledge. I will show it to a few friends. I am glad you are really getting better properly. It was a pity you could not come [...] Saturday & today. The girls looked so nice in their fancy dresses & the children today did their Cantata very nicely too [...]”.
