Martinez. Cal.July 29, 1901My dear Sister Emma: -You have been in my mind often, I am wondering how you are enduring the intense heat of this summer weather. I fear it will be trying for you as you are not strong. The few days that have been about 100° or two and three over, in the shade, here are not so exhausting as with you on account of the [dryness?] of the atmosphere, right here, there has not been a night that we have not been glad to draw a blanket up before morning. We are quite near the Bay which will make a difference, but in the plains, and not so very far away
