Sunday Afternoon. July 13, 1919.

My Dear ---

What do I care whether my lover merely thinks he loves me, and suggests that he may "exhibit at the crucial moment (of saying "I will") a certain maidenly hesitancy so to speak, and the fatal words may be postponed" --- I am quoting you exactly --- what care I?

this: all future arrangements of any sort about said minister or mayhap J.P. are entirely up to you from now on. I shall never give you another chance of accusing me of wishing to rush you to the altar willy-nilly.

I do understand pretty well, I feel, the changes taking, and which have taken, place in you on the other side. At least I understand far better than I would have, had I never been a Reconstruction Aide in Physical Therapy. I know that my tolerance of the failings of the male sex has
