[Sarah Muir Galloway]
lead her around the front yard to show her the flowers. Just as your Auntie used to hold your hand, when you were about the same size as Helen is now and we had pleasant talks about the birds and the flowers. I have a great many of the [illigible] flowers and pretty things I gathered in these days, and I like to look at them and think of the [illigible] sunshiny days when Auntie Maggie, Wanda, with some -times your Papa or Mamma and my self went wandering about among the hils vineyards and orchards about your home. I think perhaps you have forgotten all about it but Auntie Maggie and I have not.
