Excerpt from Message

My Dear May – As Genevieve promised to write you a long letter all about our day at Menlo, I shall send her card with her love on it and a thank you for your last letter – even if you did call some names in it. Please excuse me for thinking you might come out to the coast, I caught the idea from Mrs. Flynn – it really was a surprise to me. Still, I know there are cheap rates but I can’t imagine you on one of those awful excursions either – so it was all a mistake you see since I am feeble minded “you should expect nothing better.” Menlo is lonely beyond description – the roses are something, if painted would seem exaggeration – masses of them up in the oak tress – covering the grotto – over the arcade, and such a rich golden tint. The driveway of palms up from the gate is fine. Love and best wishes – I sent Will my postal like this – Agnes RSCJ. This is for Mattie too with love from Little G. & Agnes.
