Sarah [Muir Galloway]
for Mr Guidinger and lives at home. You see he is the man of the house, and at present, is supporting the family and helping Marjorie through school so that she may be able to take a good place as teacher after a while, and she is getting on well. In the meantime I am getting on all right here and feel much more at home than I would in a new place and there is nothing permanent about their stay there as far as they know at present. We hear from them oftenand what they are doing. It is fine that they are so near the cousins and Aunt Foster. They were all together on Christmas day and had a pleasant time. We here had a pleasant time too. David and Ette and Miss Thayer were with me for dinner. Mrs Westlake is in Oakland or we would have had her too. I suppose you would be with Wanda and her family and enjoyed the day too.I had a letter from Joanna lately. they have moved to one of the Suburbs of RichmondYouth." I suppose you are still as busy as ever writing, and will have another book out soon. I have been reading what I could see in the papers with a great deal of interest about Hetch-Hetchy and from all I have seen lately it looks as though San Francisco would win unless they can manage to repeal the bill. which remains to be seen, but you will know the case thoroughly. It will be too bad if the right does not prevail. I will close for this time with love and best wishesAffectionatelySarah.
