The place is in fine order thanks to Ned?, who turns out to be an excellent farmer. Allie is not able to do much hard work, & Dr Carr is too lame to use ‘shovel or hoe’. We shall have a fine crop of grapes, & our [illegible] oranges are full f[illegible]ted, also cherries, currants & other things which we were assured would not live & bear fruit. Come & see us when you can — I suppose the true bridal trip will be to the Yo Semite, of [course?] at the [Summit?] of the season.

Most affectionately yours Jeanne C. Carr.L[illegible] [illegible] in bloom under my [Oregon?] cedar.
