Miss Anne Whitney

The Charlesgate,

Beacon St



My dear Miss Whitney I often think of you - and I have the proof that you think of me, in this little book of poems, received yesterday. I am glad to have some one select poems for me, for I look in vain for some thing that means poetry to me, in the many verses printed in magazines

Your card does not tell me whether you are well, but I hope you are, and that you have the comfort of the companionship of those you love. for that is what I find I need most. Yesterday being Thanks giving - I had 16 of my family with me for dinner. Jimmy Cooper my oldest grand child, graduates this year - from Yale. Anne the next is at Farming ton at school, and there is every age among my children, down to Bettys baby - 8 months old

I find that cold weather houses me, for Albany is a very cold place, so on the 30th of January I go abroad again, only as far as Cannes, to sit outdoors in the sun shine. for a few of the weeks that will be so cold here. my devoted niece Louise Manning will go with me, & she is the best of cheerful company. I have been very well this summer, having most of my big family around me, in my camp in the Adirondacks. Now I am enjoying the fall at

Hillside: where seeing a farm & enjoying my greenhouse, & seeing my friends & best of all my children, keeps me busy - with much love & many thanks for the little book. I am yours affecy Sarah M Sage Nov 29th '12
