[5]worth having. I expect they were the only things Annie could find to keep your things from getting spoiled. Far more of my things an have than I ever expected to see again. I had a letter from Mrs L[illegible] a short time since. She spoke of her daughter not being well their house was let for the month of August, and they went twelve miles into the country among the "heather hills" where [Maggie?] was very well but they were only four days home when she had a chill and had been confined to bed with a bronchial cold, she was better and able to sit up five hours daily, but expected to be confined to the house all winter. Mrs L[illegible] says she has nursed her all through her illness and has kept very well. She sent me a pretty picture of the old church as it is now, as a "remembrance of Dunbar." How fine it is that Helen is getting on as well with her hyp[illegible]ter, she will be able to help you with your corespondence. I am glad that she and Wanda are keeping well, and getting on so well. I hope that Louie is well and comfortable again. We have been having lots of rain, the fall was unusually fine for this country and we enjoyed it, though it rains and rains, there are dry days 03111
