[2]also heard from the dear ones in Portage Wis. & they are all pretty well. What a blessed thing it is that we can write to each other at least. How glad I am that Sarah & I visited you & your dear ones in your California home so we can think of you all & your surroundings about as they are and we know what a sad vacancy the Death of Good, Kind, & Energetic Dr. Strentzel has made. I am so sorry for Mrs. Strentzel she will feel so lonely But Louie & the children will be if possible more to her than ever. I feel bad John awful sorry to think that your kind help in money matters to so many of us
