Dear Donald and Gilberte,
Thank you so much for your letter-- it touched me deeply because
Gertrude was very fond of you both. She had so much enjoyed
your letter and had taken it and your manuscript to the country
with her-- not yet six weeks ago-- to write you a long letter and
now she is gone. And Basket and I are alone here where we stay
on with no desire but to stay on. You are very sweet to ask me to
stay with you in your house or to do any thing for me but there is
nothing I need if there is at anytime it is something I will not
forget. I count upon seeing you next summer. It will be a comfort
to me. If you will allow me I will keep the manuscript to read and I
will send it to you early next month. I hope you are both well and
happy as I am sure you are.
Ever affectionately
Alice Toklas
