[4]so beautiful. & thanks you very much. There seemed to be nothing but little remnants of snow here & there among the mountains. Most of the way everything looked parched, untill Saturday when the air became damp & rainy it has been dull cloudy days since & quite a little frosty. night before last the thermometer stood 21 deg above zero which is colder than you have had it all winter. Sarah & I are very sensitive to the cold it is such a change. it has been nice warm weather here for about a month before we came home. We celebrated our Dear little Wandas birth day yesterday & had a very pleasant time, we all wish the little dear very many happy birth days. May our Heavenly Father long spare & bless her & make her a rich blessing to you all. Give my love to your dear Mother & Father. I thank them for their great kindness. When I think of you both
