To Lady Burghley1

March 29, 1944 [Washington, D.C.]

Dear Lady Burghley:

I am sending you the songs from “Oklahoma”, of which your lovely mornings and the surrey “with the fringe around the top” reminded me. Also there is included a rather peculiar item, the necessary prophylactic treatments for whooping-cough for the young ladies. I understood that this was not available in Bermuda, therefore this package which is supposed to contain enough—3 cc., I believe, for three treatments for each of the three young ladies.

Faithfully yours,
