Reverend Sir:

(For I suppose that's the way you want to be addressed). I was glad to have your letters. It is good to get any kind of news of Ruby. Please don't feel grateful for what little I can do for her. It's a pleasure to myself, and the only way one can show one's affection. It was so good to see her, looking quite cheerful and in excellent spirits. I came away much cheered. It was stupid of me not to think that you would like to see me when I had just seen Ruby, but I don't connect you with Toronto, so did not think of sending word. Don't forget that you have promised to let me come to you and Ruby for my holidays. I will write soon. I accept with pleasure.

Please tell your mother how glad I was to have the two postals from her from Gravenhurst. You are over precious in calling my piety doubtful. I'd say I hadn't any. A sure enough heathen for you to work on.
Sincerely yours,
Marion Robinson
