[5]Wont you send me your picture, because, you know, I’d be ashamed if I happened to meet you not to know you? Miss Elisa Hendricks was here this afternoon. She very often takes Mamma out to ride. Mamma sends love, also Charles, who says all he wants is an invitation to come out there. Hoping that you and the Yosemite are in good health and spirits. I am yours affectionately, Janet Douglass Moores.
