[2]brings me – little time for reading or study and little time for pictures – but am hoping such will not be the case very long – and that some day I may do something with my brush that will be for you – and that will please you. I was sick much of the time after going to northern Wisconsin and had little ambition or strength for work of any kind – but now am so well my fingers tingle for time to handle brushes – Annie writes me of the grand present you sent mother. I shall hope to get sight of it sometime – or of one as fine so it s. Maggie mentions that you and some of your family have had “La Grippe” I trust that you are quite recovered
