then we could all be happy together. She begs mama to take her to the city and says “I just know that I will not get sick this time”. You speak of the weather being so warm it seems only a week or so ago that they were having snow and blizzards in New York. Yesterday Helen and I were invited to Elsie Ames birthday party, we had a delightful time, there was a table set out under some big live-oak trees, this also was delightful and so were the strawberries on it. Judge Ames has a lovely place.Grandma is able to sit up and to go around the house. Aunt Margaret and May come over quite often, they were all well the last time I saw them Helen’s chickens and turkeys are growing fast but they are still very gentle. Now good-by papa and take good care of your self.Your loving daughterWanda Muir
