[3]loving friends. Our Alhambra hills look yet ashy – nearly every morning a white mantle covers the [ unrightiness?] of the Valley – but the efforts of sunshine begin to get recognized and if that long wished for voice comes down, by the end of the month the heights will be covered with gladness, with confidence of a new round of life – so P[illegible] you will not fail to come over and study nature under the aspect of resurrection from the glacial cover unto the budding [illegible] of Life All are well & remember you Kindly. Truly yrs J Strentzel
