01453[in margin: 868]Martinez, CaliforniaAugust 12, 1890.Dear John,We expect that the steamer Queen due at Victoria in 2 or 3 days will bring you on the way home, so I write but a few lines, for the possibility of your coming later, to tell you that all goes well here. Little Helen has quite recovered, and is as bright and playful as ever. We all feel much better, but we long to hear of your safe arrival at Victoria. I dare not risk traveling with Helen, and I can not leave her,
