Description

She reports Anne Sweeney and Ethel B. Clark are enchanted with it. Mildred Bliss mentions there is still sleet and snow, so there are few scylla [scilla] and aconites appearing. She looks forward to meeting with Sellar Bullard from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

Upper right corner: "77 [symbol for cents]" possibly indicating the cost to send the telegram.
