Daggett, Cal. May 24 -Dear Papa -I received your letter enclosing the two money orders - thank you. This is a grand warm morning, 90° now & by noon it will be higher so Im feeling well. Unfortunately Wanda dont enjoy it as much as I do but she is steadily getting better I think. But your plan for her to stay on the desert several months wont work. She is so different from me & cant enjoy just [living?] as I do, & then too while she feels something of the desert's fasination she dont love it as I do. Where I could learn to live content & care-free & be just a little girl Wanda wouldnt be happy - she cant help it - she's simply different. And then she is leaving her two boys - the big one & the little one. We're having a good visit now & it is surely doing her much good, but she intends going to Los Angeles to visit some of her College friends in about two weeks, & from there home. I'll go on getting well & sunburnt - loving my desert & feeling more thankful than ever for my gift of being able to be happy. I think we're going to04200
