My dear Willie -
I must send you the book - You can keep it for a day or two - and then send it back -
I wish you would make any extract you think worth while - for you will be better able to look into the thing than [p. 2] I have been - I was only pleased to see that in some way our connection with the Country was after all Virginian - and, as I told Sis, Lowell has to take a back seat after all!
Look it up a bit - and let us know - And do get out of this cold country!
Isn't it awful! -
I am glad though you are so much better - and feeling so strong again - I also am I fancy not doing so badly in spite of this horrid place!
[I] should like immensely to hear a[bo]ut the 14th century Whistlers!
