dc.description.transcription10/4/72 Greetings Grace, My apology for not writing. Thank you for the book which I’m reading now and the subscription. I enjoyed reading your book “Soul Sister”. After reading it, it almost seems I have been there and makes me feel glad and lucky I’m an Indian. We are anxious to seeing you again. Mother asked about you and wanted me to write to you. I told her about “Soul Sister” and she cried. Just to let you know, I got the little bag from the bus station, no problems. My mother is going to have a singing, no definite date, hope you will be here then. We will be looking forward to seeing you soon. Your sister, Bess
