birds that live on the water & yet never get wet & never get lost & God takes care of them. When you grow big then you must come here & see all these beautiful things & places. Some little girls are on the ship, but the ship jumped about so much they could not walk. I think you would have been afraid if you had been on the ship to see the waves jumping so much & making so loud a roaring noise. I send you & Wanda a kiss & love
Victoria, B. C[olumbia]
