November 21st '06

Dear Aunt Anne.

I called on Miss Converse at her churchman's office yesterday and was greatly pleased to learn that she and her mother were prospectively to be the new members of your household. I could not conceive of a more all around promising arrangement.

Well, our consecration and institution services have come and gone. It would have been good to have had you here, but on the whole, I would rather your visit should come when there is not quite so much doing.

The Edward Whitney House is being put in its best array for the general reception which is to given on Thursday, tomorrow,

night.

Margaret has her own house the Rectory in order, Kate and the new maid have settled down into the orderly ways of taking care of us and of the house, so that the domestic affairs go along like a song.

Neither Mary no Charles managed to get here, Mary sent some beautiful chrysanthemums for the Altar, and they will come later, which will be better.

Most Affectionately

George S. P.

Phillippi reported that he had a charming call on you.

Letter from George S. Pratt, New York, New York, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1906 November 21
