perfectly fine. There is lots of snow around Truckee, and that and the sight of the blue mountains gave me a hard attack of mountain craze, just when I thought I was going to be intensly civilized. We opened all the windows and enjoyed ourselves tremedously, but the conductor still thinks we are considerably crazy because we prefer wind off the snow to Pulman car bad air. Maybe we are queer but we are having a much better time than the lady in the drawing08558room section who is afraid of drafts, wears diamonds and says in regard to things in general "that its such a bore, don't you know". Its time for lunch now so I'll stop & write again tomorrowLovinglyWanda08558
