Old Home. Apr 26/08Darling Helen,I'm so glad you found my big boquet so fresh & fine amid the alfalfa & [Gray?] plains I knew you would enjoy it & I must send you another before the glory here begins to fade.Tom said last eve on returning from Berkeley that Wanda was feeling fine, that she sat on the lawn yesterday 4 or 5 hours & expected to be with you about the middle of May. Tom is going to take Master Strentzel to see her this week. Poor Wanda must have been more seriously ill than was at first made known, but there seems no doubt she is getting better. The garden here is far more glorious in bloom than ever before[in margin: Those Escholtzias & everything You planted are fairly shouting their color - joy & blessing your loving handsLove to allGod bless you Darling my Joy & prideJ.M.]
