LL 31, in part, with changes. Pencilled lines across last five paragraphs. Over paragraph beginning "To get you all once more," Sue has pencilled "Shyness." Handwriting is noticeably shakier, and an ink blot appears over the word "beat" in the seventh paragraph. Johnson omits the clause "I flew - " from the second sentence. He provides important information to contextualize the references: Sue is once again visiting friends in Manchester, New Hampshire; Professor Aaron Warner had resigned because the trustees did not give him the opportunity to rebut criticisms of his work; and Austin was due home almost immediately.
