lettering, with ornamental border around it, and framed. It is when you say "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees." and so on to where "cares will drop off like autumn leaves" then your name. I have not seen any thing of yours brought out like this before, but it is fine.We still find it a never failing pleasure to look out on the Bay, and go down on the beach sometimes. there is so much to see that is wonderful and beautiful. I so wish Maggie was able to come for a while.David and Ette are enjoying the change, the two lots they have bought one on the same side of the street as ours, just two lots between us.I am supposing you will still be at Martinez and will send this letter there. I wrote to Wanda the end of last month. May this New Year hold much of happiness for you and yours.Affectionately Sarah.
