I have just got your letter. Oh, if I could just get my arms about 
you! — And stay with you like that for hours, telling you so many 
things, & listening to all that you must have to say. — I love you very 
much, dear Anne, & I always shall. — Ours was a perfect friendship — I
knew it at the time — and it is still just as true. I would do anything 
in the world for you, & I know that you would for me. — And it doesn’t 
matter if we never write, and never see each other, it is just the 
same, — except that it would be so nice to see each other!
