Daggett, Cal. Mar. 19 -Dear Papa -This is another warm morning, with the birds singing. I have been busy in my little new garden. Dick has fixed the ditch so I can turn the water in and run it clear around the house and easily water all the plants. Ive done only the very easiest work, just putting the plants in the ground and watering them, and it dont tire me a bit. Its fine healthy work for me. Im feeling fine. Mrs Funk sweeps my shanty. I drink lots of milk, all thro' the day, and a pint of new milk just before I go to bed.The fine purple iris blossom you sent with the the plants was fresh and beautiful when I took it out. It kept pretty, in water, for two days after.04113
