[5]We talk of the coming out of your new book. When is it to appear? Does your interest in it and [illegible] enthusiasm Keep you from getting homesick for the Valley? I am very much afraid when it does come – that it will be so scientific I shall not be able to understand it. Miss Hendricks has told us much about you - and has showed me your picture which I think very good. She never tires telling me of your kindness to her – of her enjoyment in the Valley – and of her disappointment that she could not accomplish more. Then too – I feel acquainted with your friends the Keiths – and am glad to know them.We have had a kind of Indian Summer winter – until this week – and now we are all frozen up – and ‘snowbound’.- Just the day for letter writing. I enclose a little note wh. Mr Davis sent me sometime ago – it will tell its own story. Mr Davis is improving & attends to his business tho his eye sight will never be what it was. My sisters wish to be remembered to you. We have all enjoyed everything we can lay our hand on from you, and are always so glad to hear from you. May God bless & keep you & grant you long life and health! Affectionately Julia M. MooresI close in haste you will make all needed corrections. 00729
