Sender: Mildred Childe Lee
Recipient: “Mary”

Dear Mary

I met Miss Smythe in Westminster Abbey Sunday & she gave me yr address. I am with my nephew & tomorrow we go to “Schlangenbad Germany Villa Baumann,[“] for the cure – for I am still far from well. Write to me there, & tell me how long you will remain. I wish we could have met – for we have been in England & Scotland some time. I am in the midst of packing – I have only time for a word – Give my love to Miss Odger – or Esther “Aunt Jeanie”! I hate London – long for trees & grass

Affecly –

Mildred Lee

Villa Baumann Schlangenbad Germany
