Excerpt from Message

October 18th – We will do this the next sight-seeing Versailles and Sevres, and I hear a notion that will about finish it – we will take walks about here – I find the shopping takes up a might lot of time 0 I have ella’s gloves and M’s laces – but am not yet finished with the [illegible]. They are beautiful, the linen exquisite for 6.75 – I bought Nellies present it will delight her. I struck me all of a heap how whe loves lace and has none. I got two yards Val about the width of this card or a little wider – 15.50 a yard. Now that is more than I meant to give or need to give – if you want to give the lace from the four of us – It will cost you 15.50 or $3.00 - I will present it Christmas. You send me 3 of your cards or your 3 cards rather – how do you like the idea.
