Martinez Jan. 9, 1908Darling Helen,I was very glad to get your all-well letter today. Five pounds of [new?] body stuff seems to tell a good story. Above all dont get too hot or too cold Always keep out of the wind & in sunshine as cats do.The only cat about the house now is the black mother - not a kitten to be seen. Keenie seems comfortable at the adobe. He made a face of horrid emotion when I saluted him but has never offered to follow me to the old home. Were you here he would come in a hurry. Your wonderful horse looks well but with all the faithful oiling, picking, soaking scraping a few ticks still cling to him. Al hopes to see the end of the tick harvest very soon howeverI paid your Dr Moffett bill today
