.dear viola:- make for yourself a strong box, fasten each part with care, fit it with lock and big key, and pack all your troubles in there, put therein all your troubles, each frown and all of your chaff, hide therein all your crassness, then sit on the lid and laugh.
.make new friends, but keep the old, those are silver, these are gold.
.s. n. s. feb. 2nd/24. .dearest pal; there is no garden so complete, but roses make the place more sweet, there is no life so rich or rare, but one more friend may enter there! .sincerely, hilda r, kincardine.
