But I can see he wants to get somewhere where he can be in [illegible]se intimate relation with the birds & nature, & I doubt if he will stay here longer than Monday.Mr. Miller & his sister are the best kind [illegible]sts & a beautiful spirit penades the place.Sunday we had a glorious auto ride up Mt.
