[2]to the children so far far away! and they say they will not fret after you come near enough so the telephone will bring messages from you. I have not been able to read or write for the past three weeks, I was so miserable with Neuralgia owing to the unsettled weather & cold winds, that my eyes were almost useless, & the nervous trembling of my left eye came back again, but I am comfortable now, for the wind has ceased to blow[3]during 3 day, & the warm sunshine is balmy as in Springtime. We hope now for a month of golden autumn weather & no rain. Not many grapes were injured by the rain & we are sending them off fast as possible. This morning I was moving some of the unread newspapers, & found the clippings inclosed, Mr. Webster is Father's old friend who used to have a lovely home in East Oakland, & well
