Then there is an Oleander growing in the front yard ten or eleven feet high with ten or twelve stalks branching from the roof which will be another mass of bloom after a time. then there is an Olive tree, the fan leaf, and date Palms, also a great Pepper tree & a red wood at the front door, or [illegible] a young [Sequoia?] taller than the house, a cork Oak and many other things.

This is such a different looking country from what I have been acquainted with I find many things to enjoy and take note of.[Aunt?] Sarah
