Dearest Minnie, I really was asleep the other night, was roused by the fall of the candlestick, but not enough to make speaking an effort that seemed worthwhile, and I only tried to keep away long enough to tell whether I heard voices from the next room, but fell asleep in the effort. My pain is really gone at last, I think, but of course has left me feeling rather seedy. Would not coming have been a trifle better than town yesterday! It was frightful enough here, the therm. Registering 95 degrees the greater part of the day. I am writing now before anyone is awake in the house almost. Thanks for the article which I have just read and which is a very nice one. I send with this a package of gloves which I hope will fit you. The chevette I think are a particularly nice and practical glove and I hope you will like them. I think it is almost certain that I must give up the Monterey drive this week. I shall probably see Bessie today. How are the eyes? Please let the heat serve as an excuse for the stupidity of this note. Hoping to see you before you go, even if I have no pain and you no troublesome eyes. Lovingly yours, Mary E.G.
