Surgery wasn't till Sept. and December. My [daughter ?] Ann came home from Colorado Sept. 70 to April 71. Then I went back to work & she - West. She came home for good last Sept. I'd finished a book mid-August for mid-Summer publication 72. But was not up to Christmas cards. Have a lovely 72. Best to you both".

Her popularity peaked during the Depression, when many of her works appeared in serial and movie form.

She continued writing novels, though at a slower pace, after recovering from the eye surgery described here. Fine condition.
