Full Text: Tarkington, Booth N.D. 1100 North Pennsylvania Street Indianapolis, Indiana Nov 30. Dear Mrs. Sewall - It was odd: I had a recollection, very vague, of something completing the punch bowl, and yet the bowl was complete. I had a subterranean wonder if a curious ox, who calls himself my “butler” had not broken the same thing before he showed it to me. (That he did not remains still unexplained.) I am so very grateful for your kindness in sending me the mirror. I wasn’t a-hinting in my note to Mrs. Blackledge! Though appearances are against me. I shall take very good care of your china and glass and especially of the mirror, and shall always think of these are yours, as they really are, of course. I shall hope that you will visit them. Gratefully Newton Booth Tarkington
