[2]been very sick since you left but is feeling a little better this morning, the rest of the family are pretty well My eyes ached so much that I went to the City Saturday with Aunt Mary and had them treated and got some glasses, they are very uneven my left eye is very nearsighted and the right one only a little bit so, since I got the glasses they have not hurt at all and do not get tired when I read or write or am out in the sun.Aunt Mary is here and has begun painting, she has done a good deal of[3]sketching and has started to copy the Mt Shasta picture, Aunt Margaret is feeling better.Have you finished your article yet? And where shall we send our next letters to you? Helen will write to you tomorrow, she says to tell you that the puppy is very well and has learned several new tricks but is getting more mischivous every dayEvery body asks if you have gone to the Clondyke when they hear that you are not at home.
