[in margin: 880]Martinez, California,Sept 1st, 1895Dear JohnWe all are thankful that you sent a telegram at once instead of waiting to write when you reached the Valley.We cannot help thinking about those dreadful rattlesnakes, and even Helen thinks "there are too many Bears in the mountains."Both children are perfectly well, and mother is much better, but she has not yet dared to go to ride. The weather has been extremely cool here for several days, the nights are really cold with heavy dew, a great relief after so many hot days, so I suppose the grapes will ripen more slowly. There will be a few boxes of Rose Peru for02019
