May's, June 10, 06-Darling Helen.It's delightful to get your cheery reassuring letters looking forward to home coming sounds well. I was in your room this afternoon & the sunlight which somehow always seems richest & best in that room was softly glowing on the pa[illegible]tings fairly glorifying them especially the Shasta & Eucalyptus flower & I thought of the happy days you are to spend there. Oh my darling Heaven realize these fond fond hopes. Wanda letter shows she is to be here tomorrow. I trust after the trouble is over & done that Tom will buckle down to getting chimneys etc all in order for your home coming. He & Wanda ought to be able to finish the job in a week or two. Ive been working hard in the Sig & Less Library & will e able to tell you lots about these enchanted forests wh you & I must study all summer.Yesterday I went to Stanford & saw the ruins drove round in a carriage in style, Charlie Keeler & I, called at Dr. Jordans but he was away.
