Dear Family:--

            I won’t tell you much about the news this weekend as Jean can do it much more satisfactorily than I, but this is just to tell you I love you all a lot.
    Words do not express how much I enjoyed having Jean; the only trouble is, she didn’t stay half long enough.
    Tonight we had the usual Sunday evening music before Chapel and then instead of regular Chapel-service, Dr. Hall finished up the talk on India that he started two weeks ago. It was simply fascinating, for he told of many of his own personal experiences.

    I could have listened to him all night. [Well], I must stop. Only two weeks from Wednesday till I see you all. Hooray!!

            … Ever Lovingly
