[3]get that is their natural heritage.I wish I might hear more than the happy facts of new grandchildren from your family. I hope that Helen is as surely recovered as it sounds, and happy in bringing up her babies in her beloved desert. Do give both the girls my best wishes for themselves and their little ones.Mr. Bailey joins in heartiest thanks for your [ever?] new kindness to us.We hope to spend delightful winter evenings with you in the Sierra this winter, for I gave your book to Mr. Bailey for Christmas, and it will recall golden memories of the days when we were there among the best of them, days when you were with us. We will never forget them!Sincerely yours,Florence Merriam Bailey.
