[2]O do try to take better care of yourself for the sake of all who love you. We have all hoped that this grand journey will wonderfully strengthen and refresh you in every way and so thinking, we are contented to stay quietly at home. Helen and Wanda are both very well, & are greatly pleased with their teacher in their little school. Grandma has been very feeble all summer, not able to ride more than once or twice a week. We have had strange weather here for nearly[3]a month; foggy, wintry nights & mornings, & brisk south or west winds every day, & oh but such dust! Visitors from Pacific Grove last week reported such foggy bleak weather, that we shivered at any thought of going there, & Aunt Margaret had previously decided that she was not able to travel so far. Mr. Reid drove with her yesterday out on the Briones, hills, & this morning they called here a few minutes on their way up Franklin Canon [diacritic]. May is flourishing, & so also are David & Ette.01726
