Miss Anne Whitney
17 Chestnut St.
February 14, 1912
I was sorry not to see you yesterday, but not sorry you could be out in such a fine winter day.
I came to bring our spoken love to you; to say how much we regretted both of us, that our times did not match.
I was bound for my cousins
whom on account of mutual disabilities I had scarcely seen all winter; & HM was involved in some business which took her whole time & strength.
We are "[illegible: conies]" I guess; they were a feeble folk; but we do love you & send you many thoughts and we hope (& believe) you must be much better.
And it is St Valentines Day & February is speeding away.
Shall we like better the summer's heat? HM says not - but I dunno!
Yours as ever
We trust you have good news from the Lady over seas.
