My dear Brother,
Yours of the sixteenth was received today, also one from Mary, with enclosed picture. Many thanks for the same. "Robbie" looks as if he was quite an armful, chubby and healthy. Kiss him many times for me, if he will accept. I hope he is not refractory about being kissed, for he will have to suffer next summer when I come home. Three of the young ladies went horse-back riding this morning, gallanted by one of our worthy professors. One of my parlor-mates went: she is a very good rider, they created quite a sensation among the students.
I heard from Carlos, once since he left you. I hope Jennie will soon recover. It
Your loving sister
P.S. Hav'ent time to read this over. Please excuse mistakes.
