of waterfront near the wharf property. Charlie is inclined to be mean in settling but I guess he will have to be reasonable at last. The only thing he objects to now is that I want to keep the title to a group of 4 or 5 of the eucalyptus trees by the bridge near the adobe. The inheritance tax business may require a week or two to settle & I suppose I should be here when it is before the court. But I can't keep away from you much longer How much money do you wish me to bring you? Re' says he will be able to pay his rent next month, the other two Valona renters have already paid. George thinks he can sell the confounded Hall ere long. John Reid has concluded that his 2 acres bought from Knerr is enough land for him - though he offered 300 per acre for about 2 acres of yours but refused to let the line run to the creek boundaryNow write a line or a letter everyday darlings Heaven guard & bless you forever So pray Your loving lonely Dad, J. M.
