3.will get one when possible.Since seeing you, my time has been well filled at least so it seems to me. Housework, sewing, mending, painting, some reading [illegible]. making a continual list being always repeated. I have made some portraits that we like, one of you John - that quite pleases me. Has Mr. Keith made your portrait? You know he told me he would see you in a few days.I have often wondered whether or not you heard of Thomas Hill026244.and should like to know if the report of his death is true, or if he still lives.And you have latily returned from another Alaska trip.
