1913[1]Martinez, Apr. 3, 1913.Dear Mrs Hooker,I'm glad you're all going to take a travel rest It will help to blot the past and heal cruel heart-sores. Marian too will get the rest she so sorely needs and has so bravely won. For faithfull Ellie too the trip is just rightI would enjoy going with you, but enjoyment of this sort has never been mine and I suppose never will be. all perhaps for the best. I would like to see Athens and Rome & a few of the Greenland and Antarctic ice-floods; then I'd willingly let my legs rest. I like the little picture you sent better than the one I have framed. but both are impressively bad Strange is it not
