(2) I always feel quite ashamed when I am so long writing to you. It is not because I donot think of you often and love and respect you as the head of our family but I am sure you will understand how one is not as vigorous or energetic as the years pass by so just can't keep up to all the things they should. Springtime is upon us with balmy air and budding trees, how I love it. Yesterday (3) was Palm Sunday. A beautiful day crowds attended all the churches.

She is weary of it all. She tells me Carlie is home in Chicago with no charge
