Helen [Muir Funk]
Martinez Apr. 10, 1913Darling HelenI'm so glad you're going back home to the desert the only place you seem able to keep well in.I hope you are settled ere this & that your health is already beginning to mend. Spare no expense in helpful servants. For if you keep on working night & day with your children & husband cooking sweeping waiting on the table etc etc as you have been doing all will soon come to a sad end.Therefore give heed to your devoted father.Send me a few words very often
