Reached Cranford [O?]. K. ab’t 5 yesterday. I had a grand time with two suitcases and an umbrella coming across the city but porters were [...tious?].
Ella’s little outside room is cunning as can be. Cousin [Minnie?] finished the inside mostly herself.
Ella took her castor oil this A.M. - It’s her regular day for it - once a week now instead of twice. She looks the same as when she left Norwood, even tho she has lost eight pounds. I can’t see where she has lost it for she measures the same, her mother says.
The apple etc. trees are all thru blossoming here, even ahead of Poughkeepsie.
Ella expects to go over to Brooklyn with me Thurs. She wants me to come back here next week.
Mother, do you feel any better than when I left? be sure to answer me - and is that why Aunt L. is staying there?
