Hope Carla and Carlita will stay with me. I have an army cot on which I will sleep in the kitchen and we will have a very
jolly time. Am looking forward to June 3 with a lot of pleasure. I am only four or five blocks from Edward Sheldons but
quite a distance from Mrs. Sheldons.
Doan left this afternoon to get married. It is to be tomorrow and the service is to be out of doors. Just now it looks like
a good hard rain. I hope that to-morrow will be clear for his sake.
Doan and I went to the Murphys' for dinner last night. Had a cocktail and real champagne so it was pretty festive.
Monday is a holiday. I shall come over to see if our bunnies are all alive but shall not do any work. Am going to put in
the time putting winter things away at home and clean out the closets,
It will be all right to come on June 16 but I shall probably come a day earlier. Will that give you time to get to Northhampton
or have you given up the idea of going there. I shall tell the men in the elevators to let you in if you by any chance should
get here first but I shall plan to meet your train. In any case you have my address, 151 East 80 and its nearer to the NY
Central than to the Pennsy.
