[29?] Martinez, Jan. 22, 1906.

Dear Emily, I am glad to hear of your happy visit to old east friends & homes & safe return to those of the west side of our grand continent. Helen is getting better she is in Arizona at Adamana on the Santa Fe R.R near the great Petrified Forests, I have to spend most of my time there also coming here now & then to look after things. Of course all Martinez letters are forwarded to Adamana but the old desolate home is closed. I had not heard of the sale of your Oakland home. Where now are you going to make home? How long & short a time seems to lie between these California & old Mondell days! When shall we meet to recall the eventful Prairie du Chien period. I should like to see those old letters & to keep them when you are done with them.
