Berkeley Jan 8Dear HelenI was not quite drowned last Sunday and reached here safely none the worse for my soaking. I did not take cold and the furnace is in working order and I am feeling very well and happy. I was glad that I sent you home for the station hill was awfully muddy and wet, the tunnel is a pretty good place to wait in and I did not feel any draught but I don't think it would have been good for a girl with a cold. I'm afraid Arthur's idea of the Santa Fe was not improved very much. Everything here is about as usual, there are two new boarders and a lot of new day pupils, a good many of the girls are not back yet but I am glad that I came in time to learn Monday's lesson for I have so much to do that it is hard if I lose any to make it up. I am very glad that Papa is better and that you are not feeling badly even though you are coughing, I hope you will both be well by Friday, and that Aunt Margaret will be feeling better. I don't think that I will bring any one with me Friday night as Mary has a bad cold09181
