Thurs Dearest sister:- I have sure rested since I've been here. I moved only to Miss Lizzies' last night. Had dinner here. Gayle will be here any time. Miss Lizzie isn't so well. Had thought of leaving Monday but Miss Lizzie's chauffeur is driving her to the fast doctor in Memphis Sat. so just think I'd go. Said she'd take me to Laurie's house. Hope you are well and all the family . This is a beautiful town. Much love to you. M. K.
