Sarah [Muir Galloway]
there are some kinds to gather until winter. There has been no rain since sometime in June, and not much in that month. They do not expect it here. The trees on the hills are green but the grass is perfectly brown and dry. The vineyards are beautifully fresh and green, and the Orchards are fresh and thrifty. Well Emma if you get tired reading this letter at once, just take it [out?] twice I shall hope to hear from you, or some one of the family, for I long to hear how you are all getting on. What do you hear from Anita? Is Sarah teaching as she thought of doing, Mabel will be attending the University, and Harriet will be with you I think. I will address this to the Office for we heard through one of Jessie Reid's letters that you had moved I can see the Doctor going back and forth to the Office as usual. Love to all from Sarah.
