Folded letter to brother, with instruction "This way in, please" on front. Spiral letter reads, "Fiske Cottage, Wellesley, Massachusetts, 8 February 1916, Dear Brother, You don't deserve any punctuation, you young imp and I guess I won't favor you with any from now on I didn't intend that you should have that camera case before your birthday it was sent more promptly than expected it would be I haven't been taking any pictures lately either I never do in the winter this letter is fierce difficult to write I guess I am getting the worst of the bargain I nearly lost the place where I left off then. I am sending you some bookplates to put in your books if you want to. I got them for nothing so don't think you have to use them unless you want to how do you like Ivanho I have a lot of notes on in my note book in my room - the light grey note book and there is a picture of a tournament pasted on one of the sheets. Perhaps it will help you some. I'm sorry I forgot myself and punctuated my mistake entirely I assure you. Goodbye brother, I wish you joy reading this. Love to you, Sis". Includes 40 identical Ex Libris bookplates (only one digitized here).
