Aunt Margaret is just about the same as when you left, we are going over there this afternoon to pick up walnuts.We have been having delightful weather but his morning it looks as if it might rain[3]before night. Everyone has been hurrying off grapes lately but they were very badly hurt by the first rains.A great deal of grading has been done on the railroad and the little tunnel back of the house is in a long way, a good deal of track is down near here and we can hear the cars buzzing back and forth all the time.Mama received a letter from Aunt Sarah yesterday and one from Aunt Annie a few days ago, they said that they were pretty well and wished that you had time to stop and visit them.
