[J. E.] Calkins
Adamana, Arizona.Apr. 8, 1906.Dear Mr CalkinsI am very glad to hear from you again & sorry I am not at home in California to welcome you there. Since I last wrote you my wife died & my daughter Helen had a severe attack of pneumonia from which she has not completely recovered but is getting well slowly. For her sake I have been in Arizona for nearly a year. Most of the time on the high dry plateau about Adamana. My other daughter Wanda is here also most of the time & the old home at Martinez is closed.For a long time I was stunned & deadly tired, but hard work in the wonderful petrified forests hereabouts has brought back something of the hold free life with Mother Nature09195
