years--until--Ulysses-like--you can return to me to relate all of your adventures. I don't like it.*Speaking of the Grand canon of the Colorado--& all that wonderful western country. I cannot recall five happier days than those spent in crossing this continent with Mary Merrill.It opened our eyes & our minds & our hearts to see so beautiful a world & all of it ours. And the mere act of breathing - wasn't it an exquisite pleasure?To return home--[To our mountains as we used to say.] We are now living in the new home. at 986 N. Penn. St. about two minutes walk, (north) of from 9.46. where Charles is beautifully settled. Our house is pretty, convenient & pleasant. on high ground & full on sunlight. Already it seems like home. only Charles is not here. And Charles is a great thing - not easily left out. To lose a great grumbling nonsensical creature out of ones daily existance is hard. Hardly endurable
