My dearest Jule,
Your letter reached me yesterday A.M. and I of course was delighted to get it, but disappointed to have only two sheets. You ask about Mrs. Langford. I haven't seen her, & dont [sic] have any idea that I shall. People in the two cities make more ado about coming out here than they would make about a trip to N[ew] Y[ork] or even Europe. I must say I dont [sic] blame them, a trip to Europe or New York would be worth the trouble, & the expense too if one had the money. But what would any one gain by coming out here
