Martinez Jan. 8, 1908Darling HelenI am forwarding a lot of gift stuff with this & a few letters. The weather here is dismal, fog night & day. How glad I am you are in the desert.Be very, very careful not to get the least bit chilled Dress to warmly rather than allow the least hint of cold & be sure you keep out of the wind. A cold such as I got would be fatal to you in your present condition & make very small fires, in so small a room as yours, keep out of it when its the least hotI'm trying to get things in order here, Johnnie Reid has paid for his bit of land. Now comes [Pettett?] & goodbye with all my love -JM
