My Dearest One
Yours of Thurs & Friday evening received this morning- I enjoyed them so much, especially the reminicience of your Father's early life.
Though we are perhaps not as old in experience as our parents at our age, yet I can but feel that we are better prepared in many ways than they were to begin life's work
today has been a beautiful balcony day a perfect joy to be out in it Tomorrow I shall rest most of the day in preperation for the concert -How you would laugh if you could see me now - with my hair all done up in rags like "Topsy" for all the world- You wouldn't know your sweetheart such a guy Wellnever mind we cant be [?] without paying for it and I propose to be [?] tomorrow night Darling (on the quiet) have you heard of Papa's half formed idea of going to Europe for a short time this spring- This really may make considerable difference in my plans how I wish I could have a ten minute talk with him to find out really what he wants to do He is so impossible in a letter You know I would not let my selfish pleasure + ambition stand in the way for an instant of his getting any pleasure or rest that he desired I love my dear father too much for that- but at the same time I should so appreciate being able to stay until the latter part of May if that seemed possible If you have a
chance to talk with Daddy find out whether it would be posible in any way for him to go before I returned home because if not I will come just when ever he likes There is at least no great punishment about the idea of coming home to you- darling Well sweetheart must skip off to beddy A loving tender embrace with my lips against yours my loved one- I can never be lonely dear with my inexhaustable thoughts of you and your love Your own Grace Tell the little sister I will answer her very soon 85
