Dear Louise

If you have said anything further to the Dr. about Belle's coming up please say to him that she feels [?] incompetent to attempt anything of the kind yet- & upon consideration, I do not see how I could well [?] her at present- They would undoubtedly get a deal of sport out of the instruction & pofsibly [sic] some good- but we think it best for her not to undertake it. Please thank the Dr. for thinking of her. Kind [?] from all.

Yours Marion Pratt-
