quite a number of frosty mornings lately making us think of other days when we had a good many of them, but many of the flowers are blooming and there will soon be many more. I hope you keep well, and I am sure you will be busy, writing as usual in that room of your's up stairs and bringing out something more to make people glad to read and learn. I recieved the little booklet you sent me of "Muir Woods," which is very pretty It was fine that you should meet the man who gave the beautiful forest the name, and


also make the trip to the place with him. I think it must have been a mutual pleasure. I am always glad to hear how well Helen is keeping, She will have been away another year, and though she see's so much to enjoy in the desert what a glad day it will be for all when she can return to the old home. It will seem more beautiful than ever to her I think. Wanda too keeps well, and what a comfort the dear little boy will be to you all, It is fine that they are so near to you.
