[in margin: Your book made Mr. Manson very happy and proud.]Daggett, Cal. July 12thDear PapaYour cheerful letter from the mountains came yesterday, and it did us all good to know you are having such a fine time. I got your first letter quite a while ago but as I didnt know how long you would stay with the Club I waited to hear again before I wroteAll goes well here. Im feeling grand and cheerful, and the weather is after my own heart - from 112° to 115° every day now, and I throughly enjoy it and havent a single pain. I have another cat now too, and my horse is as fine as ever so I couldn't be lonesome even if the decapods didn't whistle so cheerfully going by the ranch.Remember me to all my old friends who are with you, and enjoy your mountains as Im enjoying my desert and its warmth.Always lovinglyHelen
