7The fragment appears in the letterbook immediately before BF to WF below, May 5, and is clearly the end of BF’s reply to Foxcroft’s letter above, March 2, which mentioned the baby’s name.

8BF is carrying on to the next generation the whimsy that Judith Foxcroft was his daughter; see Foxcroft to BF above, Feb. 2.
