My dear Esther
I was very grateful for your long letter which reached me in Calcutta, and of course will be anxious to know how your new plans are coming on.
Of course I will want to take care of Eri for two years somewhere of further education. If he is really thinking of journalism a course in English at the U. of C. would be the best thing I suppose [although] it may be too early for him to decide without more preliminary education in general.

We leave Ceylon on March 27" and go on to Hong Kong and from there gradually into China and Japan. We are both very well and have found India & Ceylon most interesting. We will be back August or Sept at the latest. I have had several letters from Mary Linn and [been] quite anxious about Jane who is happily better now, give my love to Weber when you see him. I hope they will all be reunited early in the summer.
Mary Smith sends her love to the entire family as does your devoted Aunt Jane.
P. S. I think Miss [McManus] will be able to send a chart for the mortgage interest in [July?] -- [illegible] [to my love?] -- [illegible] in the [winter].
