jaunt nor let any wonderful exploration draw to much on your strength. I am glad Annie is well enough to go on a tear, or set cloaking [illegible] . and hope she will succeed in chicken farm -ing. Perhaps Cam (if he is still with you) can give her lessons in poultry raising. Tell Annie that Mrs Loas arrived home yesterday. from Cal. & she is so well. & quite fleshy I wish you all could have got accquainted with her. She is my near neigh -bor._ I do not know when, but I will live in hopes of seeing you all again some day thank you all for yourmany kind invitations The Ranch must look very beautifulit is looking pretty here too now , such "living green" strawberries has been shipped in here from the south. for some little time now. we all enjoy about usual health. [stricken word] house cleaning has been the order of the day for some time, with Annie & I, we impress into the service some of the other members of the family now & again.Give my love to Louie. Doctor & Mrs Strentzel. & kiss the wee lasses for me. Love to Sister Annie.
