[2]We are all well as usual here. Our little Bernice has not been as well as usual for a few days but is now getting well we think. Joanna was quite anxious about her indeed we all were for some days.The Photo you sent me of one of the [illegible] of Liverpool do you think he looks like it. I can remember both his Father and Mother and especially his Brother John[3]who died long ago, but none of them looked the least like that Photo.You now have a very large contingent of Portage people settled quite near you I expect they all enjoy the change of climateI hope Mary and all of her family are well, also David and his folks.Sarah and Annie and Joanna all unite in kindest regards to you and all the friends in Cal
