[6]stood with the fixedness of a picture in the clear atmosphere of these nights. If it had been less deeply solemn, its beauty would have brought the tears.I wish you were with us, or that we could have gone with you, but this year your wanderings would have been too much for Marian.We shall be here a week longer and then[7]go back to San Francisco for a while, to my brothers home. Let me hear from you, whether you had a successful trip, how you are, and if Helen keeps well and happy upon the beloved desert.My address there will be c/o Osgood Putnam, 3633 Jackson St. San Francisco.Marian sends you her love.
