[3]Fortunately we have all escaped that “fashionable disease” for which we are very thankful. There has been a great deal of it here. How does Maggie seem to enjoy California – and do you think she improves in health? Give my love to sister Louie – and your children also. I am only a little acquainted with them – through what others write and say of them but wish it were otherwise – should like to have personal acquaintance with them.With much love,Sister Mary.01557
