First of all, I had aunt Him send yen the oheok for $7.00 so that you
night buy the two pmire of boots for yourself and laaa*
Second of all, I promised to reply So your lot tar*
Rtird of all, and very important, please remember that your Caddy ia a
verv busv nan* Ulan you write to society people, or to young people, who hava Plenty
of time, writ*? on your fine atatianary and write on both sides of tha paper. But, please,
when you writ'? to Daddy, take any kind of paper, the cheapest paper for that matter, and
write on one aide only. This ■than it ever so much easier for Baddy to read. A two-sheet
letter, such as yours that I am now looking at, written on both sides, is like a Chinese
puzzle to a busy aan. I take more time trying tc find ry way from one of the four per-
tions into which your two-sided sheet is divided than I do in reajing the letter itself.
Some day I should like to see ycu in your French heeled slippers. Je^n, you
are on the right track. Never hesitate at Baking yourself a dainty, delightful girl
and woman. Iht;ye is a girl's pride and a woman's pride in thirj, and it is indeed a fine
pride0 On the one hand, of ooursa, never oVi-er-dPre^s. On the other hand, never be a
frump. No matter how wonderful are the thoughts that burn in your brain, always, physically, and in dress, make yourself a delight to all eyes that behold you.
I have met a number af philosophers. Tliey were real philosophers. Their mindd
were wonderful nlnda. But they did not take baths, and they did not ohange their spa*
and it almost turned ana's stomach to sit at table with them.
Our bodlaa are as glorious as our minds, and, just as one cannot maintain a
high mind in a filthy body, by the 3ame token one cannot keep a high mind and high pride
in a fine body vrhen said body la not dressed beautifully, delightfully, charmingly.
Nothing would your Daddy ask better of you in this world than that you have a high mind,
a high pride, a fine body, and, just a* all tha rest, a beautifully dressed body.
