Or please forward.

15 Sept. 1914

Dearest A.W., This is only to say that I am just as much your little "Elizabeth" as I ever was, though I am not writing, only thinking of you and loving you every day.

That Benediction you gave me at the Bellevue has remained with me; and those four kisses will always be the sign and symbol of a long and blessed past, with the other two, never forgotten.

I wish you could know how much your sonnet, "I pledge you in a cup not overbrimming" has meant to me, & helped me through some tough places. I think AMH. could say your "Sea" by heart. She loved it so much. How good, how very good to have been able to speak for the hearts of those who cannot say it!

I would send cordial thanks to "OD", who has sent me a cheering word betimes. (This asks no written answer, but

would have you know how dear you are, to your never forgetting

Elizabeth G.

Sharon Mass.

Letter from Elizabeth Bigelow Greene, Sharon, Massachusetts, to Anne Whitney, Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1914 September 15
