[2]home letters. I hope you have had them all now, and that you are real well and have entirely got over your cold. I know dear John that you have had much to tire you but that you are enjoying your trip and have seen such grand forests and glaciers that you love to see and will tell us and the world about them sometime. Your own dear lasses and Louie are well, and I think they will tell you the news about home and the valley. David seems real well. Ette about as usual. Mr and Mrs Westlake are not[3]so well. May [illegible] Arthur and Miriam are well – Mrs John Foster of Los Angeles was here a day. She came to see me a little while She looks well and is the same frank, good woman she ever was. I enjoyed seeing her.I have been quite sick but am better now.I miss you John but the time is passing and as long as you are well, and your studies pleasant and such as you enjoy and long for it is all right and I do hope and pray that the Dear Lord will bless and keep you in all
