No. J. 5. Athelma Apartments,

September 29th, 1922.
I got your special delivery letter just a while ago, and I am answering it right away. There certainly are obstacles in the way of your coming up here and so I am going to send you a telegram in a few minutes to tell you not to come up here until after you've moved and are settled in the eighteenth street house and I'm explaining myself in this letter.
You see the situation is this. Blanche's Father is better now she heard the other day, so the immediate crisis is over and she won't have to leave before the middle of the month anyway, but the point then is that the Doctor wants him to go away and get a complete rest if he is able to stand the trip and you see that would leave Virginia and Blanche's old Grandfather and Aunt all alone, so that she would have to go home to take care of them until Mr. and Mrs. Le Gallee returned. He would not consent to going away unless he knew Blanche was there, and everyone says he ought to go if he possibly can stand it. So you see where the matter stands. Blanche would have to go then around the middle of this month and stay indefinitely until he returns. She says it might be only a month, but it might be more, she can't foresee. So I don't want you to have to come up twice the way you would have to, so I thought if you'd come just as soon as you could after you have moved back, why then if you had to stay longer, you could, without any moving on your mind. I hope all this will blow over, but if it had to come isn't it fortuante that it came when you were home from Brazil? Then too, if you came up around the fifteenth you might be able to stay a wee bit longer than as if you came on Monday, perhaps a full week then! Blanche just suggested that I call is/a very good suggestion. She says why not come home with her for the time
