Martinez, California.September 4, 1900.Dear Papa,We have not heard from you for such a long time, I wonder where you can be, up in the beautiful mountains, I suppose in the snow-storms and hoar frost, a long way from any P.O. The weather has changed here, and I think maybe we will have some rain soon, the sky is dark and threatening, and wind howls out side, there is a fine mist too. Last Saturday Wanda brought Zoe [diacritic] Watson, one of the girls from School home with her, and we had a lovely little picnic in the afternoon over at Bear Creek fall in Briones hills, Mae and [Eva?] Griffin, Minnie Overfield, and Mrs. Hal Coleman also went with us. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed it so09230
