Excerpt from Message

This is an aerial view of the children’s school in Greenwich. It is 17 ½ miles from my door to the convent door. Two trips a day, 70 miles daily! I’m offering it up as I’m way behind in my repositories anyway. When they are ready for High school they can either board or take train. They all come home weekends. Mine are day students. All lower school pupils are. Think I’ll put this in an envelope! Love Jean PS Wish you could visit Greenwich or Noroton so we could see you. The girls would love it.
