Miss Anne Whitney
[printed letterhead: MENAND'S ALBANY, N.Y.]
Dear Miss Whitney
On my return from Europe, I found your little book - I have only had time to attend to first things, so I have not read it yet, but am sure I shall enjoy it, since you send it - I have been
on the Riviera for six weeks, and though life there, does not compare with life in Rome, for outside interests, it is a good place to enjoy life outdoors - & such flowers & trees - I could not have imagined, as being any where in February - & now that one can go sixty or a hundred miles a day
in a motor- there is always some thing wonderful to be seen. I come home to my dear children, & my 17 grandchildren, & realize that I am a much blessed woman. I hope the winter has used you well - I motored to Meudon, & saw Rodin's studio from a distance, I have one of his groups, "The Flight of love" - you have a copy in the Boston Museum.
Have you ever [deletion: seen]read "Art by Auguste Rodin" - you would enjoy it, if you like Rodin's work - I am always so glad to hear from you, & to know how the days, as they pass, treat you -
Yours Sarah M Sage
