Sat. Rome [Roma] Dearest Mother. I really think if you don't mind, I shall stay on here a week or two longer and do some work. I'm just going out to dinner so I haven't time to explain, but you will realize from what I told you that these Roman things seem to me more and more important and if I took 3 weeks now over them I should begin to see where I am.
But if you want me to come back, send me a telegram and I will come. Your affectionate daughter Gertrude
