To Mrs. J.G. Holland
Annie looks the pathetic Squirrel that she always was and Kate a questioning Dove -
Her question however is answered now - Please tell her from me -
The Clock strikes one that just struck two -The instant acquiescence was delightfully hearty - the suddenness of a tenderness making it more sweet -
Thank the Suggester and the Enacter, and once more, please, a little news of the ill Linnet -
We trust Mr-Van Wagner retakes his fleeing Health - Should suggest a Policeman, and that Kate found Flowers and wonder in the Sweet Land.
March is three Days with me, but his Face is so unbecoming still, I dont show him to Strangers -
With love for each, and a shy smile at the new Brethern,
