They are to be married just before train time & start right off on a trip, for a week or two, & then settle down in Crete on the same street we live on, about four blocks away. I hope you are all well we are about as usual. I left John & Harry well. Johns affairs are the same only the Bankers did not shut us clear off as they seemed threaten J has put in over 100 acres of (or will have when it is all in) crops. I do hope we will have rain this year, to make it grow. we have had a very mildwinter, hardly any snow. Duncan [Reid?] is back in the States. & was married about ten days ago, don't know whither he is going back to Africa or not, did not hear hardly any particulars.
