    Dear Lucy and Crellie:

    We were happy to receive your letter. Thanks for sending the check for $100.

    I hope that you are really satisfied with the trip to Oslo. We though it was a wonderful affair. Everything went well with us, except that we were caught in the big snow storm in New York, and were put up overnight in a third-rate hotel, where we were so cold that I caught a bad cold. Mama now has it.

    Much love from
