Down thru the [mid?] of it [found?] this beautiful river [shining?], spangling in the golden light; yellow [grasses?] along its banks & strip of brown meadow while the whole park was astir with wild life. some of which even the noisiest travelers must have seen had they been with me.01775[2]I could wish myself in Cal. this week. Just think of 23[degree symbol] below zero, and that is what it was yesterday morning. It is very much milder today.We are all well as usual here in Portage, but Hiram and all his people have been having a very severe tussle with grippe. Kenneth and I came home for Christmas and remained because they were afraid we would take it too, but if it is mild enough we will go home tomorrow.With love to the many relatives and a good share for yourself, I am affectionately yours,Anna Galloway Eastman.
