Elisina Tyler to Mildred Barnes Bliss, November 30, 1951

55 Avenue Foch

Paris XVI

November 30 1951

Dearest Mildred.

Thank you so much for the postcard from the boat. It was a last and unexpected greeting.

When you and Robert go, a sad afterglow lingers in our hearts. I’m sad, and grateful for the memory of happy moments spent with you that lingers as a promise of your return.

I was glad to be able to tell you how the task Edith left to be doneEdith Wharton’s task has not been identified. has overcome all the obstacles and is at last fulfilled in the manner she would have liked best—She had strong feelings on the subject of the French army as the highest expression of the French spirit in its forward march.

This is truer now than ever in spite of political fogs that time will sweep away.

My best love to you both.

Please come back soon.

Yours always, as ever

Elisina
