Walter E. Dandy Letter 06/29/26

June 29, 1926

It seems such a long time since I have written you. The last time I believe just after I was married. That seems all important event from which to date things: and it has really been a great event. I have been so happy with the wonderful little girl and the little rascal around which everything seems to revolve and radiate.

I often think it must seem that I have forgotten the dearest little mother in the world and the finest father, but I know they know better. It is only the penalty they are having to pay for having stimulated in every way they could see an unbounded ambition, the results of which I know bring to them the really greatest reward. I often think I seem to do nothing to make your lives fuller, but your wants are so few and simple there is so little reason to supply any wants or needs. I do wish you would spend the week with us in Ocean City so we could see so much more of each other and, besides, I know you would enjoy it and it would also do you good. You must also come see us more often - at least once a week and watch your little boy grow, for I want you to become attached to him and he to you.

I was greatly rushed to get through my work and get away. Last night I slept 11 hours and am really relaxing to enjoy a greatly needed rest. I called to tell you goodbye, but you were doubtless at church. Do go and see that boy frequently while I am away. He is such a sweet thing. I miss him more than I thought possible. I have been so fortunate in picking the best mother and father and girl and now, I believe, this boy.

With love and kisses,
