Excerpt from Message

True old girls!! A letter from you and from Ida came in on the very first boat (Aug. 15) and Mrs. & Ms. Glad to get there!!! I’m leaving my soul behind in this paradise – altho that old body plus 10 lbs. must leave tomorrow. They have everything – fruits, flowers, mountains, Verdun ocean climate. This hotel is simply perfect in every detail. Love to you from the wandering sister.
