[2]for Annie so long ago, also the picture of the old church in Dunbar that mother had. and said she might send them to Chicago and Grace would store them for me. And if there was any photograph or little thing she would like me to have [they?] could be handed to Miss [Hattie?] Whitney who was in Portage and was coming here soon. You will see by the letter that she is sending the pictures and some other things by Miss Whitney, who is a niece of the Mrs Whitney who owns the place where we are staying.I had a long letter from Mrs Sanderson a short time since, she asked me to thank you for [illegible] for a copy of "Out West" which you sent her. and says "I prize it very highly." She has been spending the winter at Orange, New Jersey, with her daughter and husband. [3]I hope you are all keeping well this winter. In one of Maggie's letters she said Louie had been sick with a cold, but that is some time ago. Wanda and Helen will be busy with their studies, It will be rather bad for Helen going back and forth to school in the rainy days, but she does not mind that much.Kenneth and [Marjorie?] get on their rubber boots and go out in the mud and wet not minding it much.We have been having clear frosty nights and sunshiny days. the [daisys?] and English violets have blossomed, and other spring flowers are showing themselves, a good many birds too have come.We gather beautiful ferns along the creek banks which is near bye.03167
