3here, and Im so happy to know you are better. I was afraid you were worse than you would tell me, but I could do nothing, save get stronger and better everyday. Are you alone in the big house? How is Wanda? If you could only be here to breathe this glorious desert air you would all get well. For the last three days we have had the most beautiful weather - dry and sunshiney, the thermometer at 75° and 80° in the afternoon. I have enjoyed it so, and am040504getting sunburnt. There is no place like the desert.If only you didnt have to worry so about me - know that I am steadily gaining and am constantly getting ahead toward health. Take care of yourself and come back to the desert when you can.Always lovingly yoursHelen2419 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, is Miss Brodt's address. Her initials are W. B. Brodt.04050
