Dear Mrs. Pauling,
I was thrilled to have the books you sent with all your signatures. Thank you very much.
I am now choosing which part of America I should like to live in, from the landscape point of
view. I have read Benjamin Spock from cover to cover -within an hour of getting it - and think
he has a remarkably modern and persible attitude.
Anita arrived amid much excitement on all sides yesterday. We all sat up very late
listening to her accounts of life in Honolulu, her children and so on. I think she is very
fascinating, she brought me some tiny fine organdie vests for the baby in different colours. So
we shall have to come to California so that he or she has a chance to wear them. I am knitting a
white hat which is taking a long time. It is rather difficult to know just what we shall need.
For myself I bought a two-piece dress with a black skirt and a rather nice print top from a
good shop in London, and made another shirt and top at home. I want to do some more
ambitious things but I am a little nervous of my Landlady's techniques with the sewing machine.
She does all the machined parts for me, and she ignores the patterns completely. She is very
sweet to me though and helpful.
I am very well, and go to my clinic every month. Peter seems to be getting quite chubby
but he says his insides are being ruined, presumably by my cooking. I think I do improve a little
Love to you all,
