that seems an awfully long time & I would that I could throw the worlds into high gear. I'm sorry you are not getting much sleep these days. You'd better take a nap during the afternoons, else you might get sick. Everyone I meet expresses great pleasure over the news and all speak of you in the highest terms. I didn't know before that you had so many friends here. Lane wants to take me up to Akron Tuesday morning, but I think I'll go up to-morrow night. The roads are none too good & I don't like the idea of being delayed by a flat tire. Forgot to tell you that I have gotten you a dandy little watch. It keeps perfect time. - Will write you to-morrow. A bientôt sweet Love. D.
