[child's scribbles at top of page]Alhambra July 14th..Dear Momma, The baby is just as well and sweet and happy as she can be. She has always been perfectly [contentive?] ever since you went away, and I think she would continue to be so were you to stay away a month. She writes letters every day to "dear Mamma and Papa" and is always asking "when you are coming home. Spends the time in all manner of plays, [illegible] on her little [stairs?], setting the [table?] with her little dishes, looking oer the pictures, and helps me at everything I have to do. Last night she sat with her [Grand?] after writing a letter to "Mrs. [Partington?]" until she got so sleepy she had to go to bed. [Grand pa?] and I [took? take?] her out walking in the fresh air several times everyday; and never leave her a moment alone. The new cook is very kind to her, and wants to do all she can for her, but baby will not make up with her nor go near her.06149
