    My sugar plum, Crellie

    I went to the museum today. And I saw many fine things.

    I hope you are getting better. I wish I were there with you. It is fine that the swimming pool is progressing so well. We'll have a lot of fun, won't we?

    You are a dear boy, and I love you. I love Linda too, and my sweet Peter. I'll be glad to be at home again with you.

    The Daddy and I are working hard on his index. My hand has grown tired from writing so much.

    Hugs & kisses.
