Miss Anne Whitney The Charlesgate, Boston Mass.
Friday Eve. Dec. 18. [in pencil: ]
Dearest AW. It is I, myself, your little Elizabeth Greene, who will make myself a Christmas present of a dear sight of your dear face. For I propose to spend my Christmas in Boston, & I shall hie me to the Charlesgate (as soon as I have taken breath after the journey) and satisfy my soul. Your little note in your own hand is my treasure till then. And I shall see O.T.D. & offer my own little leaf of laurel, & thank her besides for her many human kindnesses, which she has not forgot to let fall.
I will write again, when I have found myself, in Boston, & am now & always yours, - "yours to keep." Elizabeth.
We expect to go to the "Thorndike" The Bellevue impossible this time.
