She wrote this to a friend from college upon learning of the latter’s engagement. It is probably illegal to post this, so I’m going to say clearly that I got this from “The Habit of Being”, edited by Sally Fitzgerald.

In honor of my nuptial blessing I am writing on white paper, 16 pound bond, suitable (and left over from) 2nd and 3rd copies of theses. The following are violets:
[a row of three disheveled flowers]

I would like to send you a teasespoon[sic]. What kind would you like me to send?
I am leaving a large space at the bottom to make this look more nuptial.
An abundance of peace,
