[2]Wont you come to see us there? There are some pretty hills and the university iself isn't bad to look at.I have enjoyed the few tramps out from the campers, and very much our large garden.But this is really glorious. We have the simplest little cabin and practically live out of doors. And mostly the days are indescribable blue, and the poppies and cyelaven are wild in [3]the fields. We shall be here two weeks longer, and could you come down could make you comfortable, and the place would make you happy.We are following your splendid fight for the Valley and cry you god speed. The pamphlet recently sent out, is the best of any kind I have seen. And so often they fail utterly.We have Helen's announcement cards! I was so surprised and am so eager to hear more. Is she to live[5] [22 Dec 1909and to Helen and Wanda and her bairns.Charlotte KelloggGood wishes and warm admiration for your splendid fight for Hetch-Hetchy Whatever the outcome the fight is worth while —[Sincerely?] [V.
