Helen is suffering in bed from a severe cold but is now much better & we fondly hope she will be up & like herself in a week or two. But coming on at the beginning of the rainy season gives me no end of anxiety.
When [away you?] & Mrs Calkins coming back to us, I wish you could come & help me with those old notes, I suppose if I had them typewritten I might be able to make them readable. Helen & I would be delighted to have you all winter with us if you found nothing better to do. Possibly however I I may have to take Helen away tho she seems likely to be herself very soon. Anyhow come when you can, for we are ever faithfully yours,
