[4]The country looks rather dreary. everything looks brown to me except a little around the creek. There has been no rain to do any good here since May the creek [illegible] a good many springs which [come?] quite near the house. make me often think of Fountaine Lake, but there is not a tree in the land -scape. hardly anything but buffalo grass. & it is wonderful how the horses can live. & some of them grow fat on the brown stuff.Give my kind regards to Doctor & Mrs Strentzel.* with much love to yourself, & Louie, & the Children.I am as Ever. affectionately- Maggie R.01320
