Dear AW

Ever since you asked about Mrs Dall. I have had it in mind to let you know whenever I should hear from her. I send a letter received from her the last of November; I answered it & she returned a few lines not in her own hand thanking for what I sent, & saying she should soon tell my mother of her gratitude to me! This note is lost -

Two days ago I received the

note from her son, which I enclose.

I have heard nothing further; & I have looked in the list of deaths in the papers without finding her name. I wrote to Wm Dall, that I could not regret her passing as she so much desired to go, & found life so full of suffering.

And now how are you? I have many times thought of you & wished to go & see you; I have not been able to do so, having for several weeks a disabling cold & cough.

So Morton is expected today here; she has delayed her return on account of my incompetence. I think she is somewhat better than during the summer, which was a poor time with her.

Lizzy Greene has been injudicious enough to fall down stairs & bruise herself from top to toe:- literally! She is in bed with a nurse & doing well; - no bones broken fortunately - only her "self respect" she says!

I have lovely Mrs Dargan's new book - unread so far; - I look forard to it.

I suppose you dont want the notices any more; I send them in case!

And I can love you in my seclusion, just the same! - Yours EHB

Letter from Elizabeth H. Bartol, to Anne Whitney, Boston, Massachusetts, 1912 December 18
