[letterhead]ADAMANA, ARIZ., Feb. 19, 1906Dear Mr Murdock:I thank you for your kind sympathetic letter of last September. Only those who have suffered the same loss can possibly understand its influence.I had to make haste to my daughter Helen who had a dangerous relapse after a severe attack of pneumonia. She has been here ever since our sad loss, & though much better now & seemingly well on the way toward complete recovery she is still a source of great anxiety & care, & may have to remain in Arizona for another year or more. Either Wanda or I has always been with her, most of the time we are both here.I have of course done no literary work since August, but am beginning03607


Adamana, Ariz.
