Tell Mary that I am very thankful for her present of Guava Jelly as a soothing for my cold, and that I wish her to be as distinguished among the girls as the Guava is among the Jellies.
Tell her also that when I can find a remedy for my Rheumatic fingers I will send her my name written, as in health it would be.
