My dear Mama,
There was a Christening this morning at our church.
We had tea at the Fletcher's yesterday, and we played at a
great many games. We have begun to learn our parts in the
Play; it is printed in a little book. It was so warm
yesterday, just like summer. A bar for turning head over
heels, and a knotted rope have been put up for the little
ones. They are much pleased with the books that you sent
them; Hermie is very anxious to learn about "Froggy". She
sends you her love, and thanks for your nice letter. Give
my love to Papa, and thank him for writing to me.
I am Your affectionate Terence.
