#7176send you many kisses & much love & hope that you will be very good to Mamma & Wanda & [Bap?] & grandma. It has been rainy nine days but today the sun came out & this is a beautiful night though it is cold & big black & gray clouds are hanging about the big mountains & the glacier & some of the big pieces of ice floating about in the water look dim & gray & I am glad my little girl is in a warm sunny country & in a cozy house & home. When I come back from a walk that I am going to take I will send you another picture.
