Dear Sarah - I have just had your address from Sarah Rackie. So now I send you a box which your dear Mother gave me. it was from her I learned all the painting of flowers that I know, and I can recall many happy hours spent with her, when I received her much valued lessons old as I am 84. I have a very clear rememberance of those days. I have heard from Sarah what a roving life yours has been, such has pleasures and trials too. I hope you are blessed with good health and able to enjoy such times - that alone makes happiness. I am rather shaky often, but I only have to look around to see many worse. And now
good bye until we meet in our home above.
With love yours affectionately
