Dear Nathan Leopold -

Please believe that we do not forget you – and shall visit you soon as possible. Of things that you might like — what will the warden permit us to bring as a little sign of our great desire to leave with you a bit of cheer where we must say au revoire? You would have seen us long ago — but Mr. Darrow has never been very well since that summer of anxiety & uttermost tension so — we are away much of the time. Until we meet — and ever — your sincere — Ruby Darrow
