01340Martinez April 20, 1889.Dear brother Dave - Yrs of Mch 19 came in good time that is anytime, for you write so seldom unless spurred by [mere?] business. I am glad to hear that you have all come through the winter unfrozen & that mother is again in her usual health. Annie writes that she suffered a good deal in the beginning of winter but is now hopeful & in fair health. I sent John $1000 which I hope will tide him over his worst difficulties - I tseems strange that a practical stockman should have been so easily imposed on as he was in the matter of those mustang colts. Have you yet divided gains with Dave in that syndicate business? I have not been able to get a dollar or word out of him
