Saturday morning.

Dear Annie,

I want to thank you for the essay which you read last evening in chapter meeting. I had been making myself very unhappy all the afternoon and was quite sure that my "doll was stuffed with sawdust-"

There were words in your essay which made me feel better & happier & for them I thank you.

Yours with love
Sophie B.
