[2]I have now had the pleasure of reading all of the valuable Books that you so Kindly sent me and I intend to go over them all a second time, so I am now at the fourth number studing the wonders of Mount Shasta and the very trying time you had while there A kind providence had watched over you and brought you safely through all those very dreadful experiences[3]through which you have safely past Do you or Louie or any of your family intend to make a visit to the Worlds Fair this summer – if any of you do we will be very happy to see you in Portage or any of the friends – We are having very cold stormy weather and the ground is now covered with snow and very high winds that penetrate every where –01652
