Will Muir is going to rent the part Mr. Westlake had.I received a note from Aunt Sarah last week, saying she had been sick but was now much better. She and Anna Eastman are coming down here to make us a visit some time this spring. They are still undecided-3-what is best for them to do.It has been rainy here for the last two weeks - and everyone is thankful. We now have abou[t?] 17 inches in all. Every thing is putting out green leaves, and the almond trees are in full bloom, even the peach trees are beginning to blossom. This has been a lovely day, and we feel that spring is coming. I can hardly realize that where you are it is summer time.Underwood Bros. have sent you a complete set of photo's. of the President's Western trip, among them is one of you and the President standing on Glacier Point. It is a wonderful picture, for you both seem so lifelike, I can almost see you standing there. But I want to see you yourself. Come home as soon as you can.
