Alice types a letter...

Two weeks or so after Alice wrote pleading for a response of some sort – a disappointing letter arrives from Pansy.   Our Alice put her new business skills to use and typed a response - I think Alice is a little miffed he isn't doing what she wants. What do you think?

From Chula Vista, Cal
December 2, 1908

My dear friend,

Your very welcome letter reached me a short time ago, and I was much disappointed to read of your delay in coming west, for I had planned so much, and do want to see you very much, but I think (from the way your letter read) that you will never see me here, if ever, elsewhere, for I am going east very soon, to boarding school and after a year of that I will travel.

I intend visiting Boston, but only for a very short time, for my friends will mostly be in New York and Philadelphia. That is why I would like to see you before it is to late.

I trust you to be so kind as to keep all I have said to you quiet, not that I would believe for a moment that you day what I write to others but merely wish to remind you.

Did you care for my picture?

Wishing you a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Years dear,

Very lovingly,
Your sincere friend
Alice B. Wood

~I'll have another letter up tomorrow ~ Alice gets down to the nitty gritty this time (for 1909). See you all then.
