(2) Next is this which speaks for itself and I am writing my appreciation of the very high honor and sincere regrets. Would not it have been wonderful if I could have gone and gone with you on the 12th giving me a week to see Paris with you but I'm forgetting that that probably would have been a burden rather than a pleasure to you. I dare not let myself think of this - you can't know what a tremendous joy it would have meant to me - to be a delegate that Congress - to sit with those women from all over the world & especially our women who will go - the best of America; to hear the discussions & bring home the news. But it is all so out of the question I won't think of it. Instead I shall take those returned Wanamaker checks & go to the state convention at Lynchburg next Wed. My car is done & they say we can drive there in seven hrs so Bess will drive & Sadie & Blanch Culpepper go with me Maybe Betty too - she will drop off at Roanoke to be with Martha at college where we will spend Sunday on our way home. Sadie will return Sat. by train & we will probably bring Daddy back with us. I am expected as vice president to preside the first night Thursday. And I shall thank you for what will give others pleasure as well as myself. Bess has been superintending Oscar & Edna planting the grounds of the Beach cottage. They have hauled ten loads of dirt from Elizabeth Park & hedge & trees & shrubs & rose vines & we shall picnic out there tomorrow after church. It is so lovely. You are going to be crazy about it, I'm sure. She advertised her apt. for rent in this eve. paper & already had a reply. We will go out by May 10th & do give me exact instructions how to send our farewell letters to you & Polly. Bushels of love. I do hope your leg is all right. Love to Doug & Will Mother
