Letter to Freddy
by Gertrude Stein

My dear Freddy,

I did not answer sooner because being a little troubled about you I wanted to see Harry first. Now I have and as it seems that you are really not well don't you think it would be best to come to Paris where you can be looked after, and then we all can decide what you ought to do. You poor boy, it's bad to be all alone and I do think that you had better come here, don't you?
