[5]The people here like my guitar, and the men all want "Marching through Georgia" - "Rubenstien's Melody in F" is quite lost on them.I am so anxious to see how my last pictures turned out - the ones taken in the petrified forest that Miss Safford took to Leet's when she went home.Now I must stop for this time. Tell Mama I am going to write to her tomorrow. Remember you hear from me every day and drop me a line now and then for they "cheer me up." So good-by.Always lovinglyHelenTell Papa I keep away from "horse's back," and am taking lots of decent pictures, and like Arizona better every day. I feel so energetic I am going to go for a little walk."("Hi diddle diddle diddle dum dum dum"!)
