the audience, and also sung and played several beautiful pieces on the Piano. I know it
was grand. How I wish I had been there in company with the escort that Miss Mollie had on
the ever to be remembered Easter Sunday. I am fearful, though, from the looks and
prospects of the weather, that you will have a gloomy, cloudy day. But of course the
company will dispell all the gloom that might hap- pen to gather over the two happy souls.
More paper again.

Mr. J. C. Brewer
I am at a loss what to write to you that would interest you, as I failed completely before, judging from the tone of your last letter. I can't imagine what I wrote last that caused you to answer like you did. As far as the Valentine is concerned, I know I was joking in what I said about it. I in- tended it as fun and thought that you would take it that way. I never thought once of getting any ways insulted at what you said about the ki-- and am very sorry indeed that your feelings are hurt about it. Or, if you are not out of sorts about that, it must be that something else is the matter, for
