[2]I am so glad you remembered my great interest in the desk and clock. It is a wonderful thing and I would like to se the "wheels go round.' Are the back legs [illegible]ooks or carved in imitation? And isnt that a photograph of your sketch? The dear old tea-gounis, I suppose, laid away. I am glad I [illegible] it. I saw Mr. Keith and told him I was homesick to see you, he urged me to go to Martinez but[3]school opened a week earlier than usual so I could not do it. We are going to see you here, very soon, I hope. Marian and I read aloud the story of Sti[illegible]een. It was in '97 the last bound volume of Century they have. [So?] have it in more form so people can read it - It is a wonderful story, the [illegible] of the dog, as you write it is one of the most touching things I ever read.
