Marian and I are well, but up on our mountain side we are far from the Partola [diacritic] festivities [unless?] we [descend?] to meet them. Marian would have none of them, but as she had one holiday [illegible] [her?] she agreed to take a walk with me. Every concessive of that kind I look upon as [illegible] [pain?], for she does not get in exercise enough in her present life. We have walked to the Cliff House and footed itthrough the park on several occasions and it does us both good. Then it is three miles from this place to my brother [illegible]'s home and we have done that several times also.I believe everything is as usual at Los Angeles. Eellie writes me the ups and downs of her school career. They have fifty seven scholars this year, but had to expel one, which was a momentous affair and very discomforting.
