2.get on all right. Pacific Grove is close on the Bay of [illegible]y. It makes me think of our old home in Scotland as I look out on the Bay and watch the waves as they come rolling in, and dash in spray against the rocks. It seems wonderfully beautiful with what power they come rushing in. I have not been down to the beach yet, though close by, but will soon now. I left Maggie better than she has been, but she is never very well, She has had a great deal of sickness through the past summer and fall. Perhaps you will have seen Anna and Jessie since their visit in the Valley and so would get lots of news. We enjoyed their visit very much. When I left, John and Louie were usually well. John busy writing another book. Wanda will now be home for the holidays. Helen though pretty well has still to be very careful in damp weather. David had been very sick, but was much better before I came away. Ette was usually well. They are trying to sell their ranch, thinking to get on in some easier way for both. I have not heard from Joanna for some time, she had been quite sick, but was better when we heard last. They were still at Port Norfolk Virginia and enjoy living there. I had a letter from Mary a short time ago, all seems to be going well with them.
