My dear Cal
Just "ten cents" for to buy some maple-sugar for yourself. I thought it would not be worth while sending you some because the postage would be too much. Many happy returns of the day. Old enough to be a great deal better. We are being nearly roasted alive here but it looks like rain to-day. Reggie is here but does not look very well, he seemed to be enjoying himself though.
I have had enough domestic science down at the school for a while. We spent an hr and a half boiling a few parsnips of course that look in theory and clealiness.
The cherry-tree is out in blossom and looks lovely. I think the blossom is the lovliest season in the whole year.
Mama & Mary went to a tea at Miss Park's this afternoon. I saw your friend Sandwell on the street a few Sundays ago with a young lady, small & quite pretty. I supposed it was Miss Street. Be sure and buy the maple sugar.
Your loving sister,
